SPACE COAST DAILY TV NEWSFLASH: Brevard County Commission and Policy Group Chairman Bryan Lober provided an update on Brevard County government’s response to the Coronavirus threat, including news on closing down beachside parks and parking access starting Thursday, but keeping the beaches open to the public.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Commission and Policy Group Chairman Bryan Lober announced Wednesday morning on Space Coast Daily TV that the Brevard County government will be closing down beachside parks and parking access starting Thursday, but will keep the beaches open to the public.
This will also include all Brevard beachside municipalities and Patrick Air Force Base beachside parks and parking access along the Space Coast.
“The governor’s office contacted the county and requested that we test a pilot program for the entirety of the state where instead of closing the beaches themselves, we close all the beachside parks and all of the beachside public parking,” said Lober.
“The goal is to keep the crowd sizes on the beach to reasonable levels so people can maintain social distance, we are not shutting the beaches down and this is a good middle ground where we can largely accomplish the goals without having some of the negative consequences.”
