Palm Beach County's Beaches Will Remain Open For Labor Day Weekend

Palm Beach County officials are clearing up any possible confusion, after the Town of Palm Beach announced this week that it would be closing its beaches for the upcoming holiday weekend. Town officials say they want to prevent large gatherings and what could be a "super spreader" event.

All county-operated beaches will remain open for Labor Day weekend.

The beaches will still need to adhere to CDC guidelines, according to county officials and the county later noted that Peanut Island remains closed until further notice, under an emergency order.

Palm Beach County-operated beaches include:

Carlin Park in Jupiter

Coral Cove Park in Tequesta

DuBois Park in Jupiter

Gulfstream Park in Gulfstream

Juno Beach Park in Juno Beach

Jupiter Beach Park in Jupiter

Loggerhead Park in Juno Beach

Ocean Cay Park in Jupiter

Ocean Inlet Park in Ocean Ridge

Ocean Ridge Hammock Park in Ocean Ridge

Ocean Reef Park in Riviera Beach

Phil Foster Park in Riviera Beach

R. G. Kreusler Park in Palm Beach

South Inlet Park in Boca Raton

The county notes that in keeping with an existing emergency order, beaching, landings, anchoring, or mooring of vessels on sandbars, islands, and open shorelines is still prohibited.

Local governments and municipalities may determine the closure of beaches within their jurisdictions if they feel it necessary.
