VOLUSIA COUNTY, FLORIDA – Gov. Ron DeSantis met with doctors and health care professionals on Sunday at Halifax Health in Daytona to discuss elective surgeries resuming in hospitals and the state’s latest efforts to combat COVID-19.
Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that beginning Monday, restaurants and stores will be allowed to reopen at 25 percent capacity — kicking off phase one of the state’s reopening plan.
The order will exclude Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, but the Republican governor said those counties will be able to enter phase one of the reopening plan “soon.”
As a result, the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners, along with a policy group activated as part of the COVID-19 pandemic response, by having rescinded beachside parking restrictions effective immediately.
County-controlled beachside parks and beachside public parking access areas will be reopened for most beaches.
Municipalities such as Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Melbourne Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, and Melbourne are expected to announce openings of beachside parking access at a later date.
Beachside parking access was closed March 18 in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Removal of barricades put in place to block access to beachside parking areas will begin today (Friday, May 1.)
While beachside parking on County beaches will reopen, a beach renourishment project is underway in areas between Patrick Air Force Base south to Spessard Holland Park and will not be completed until Wednesday.
It will reopen to beachgoers at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, May 7.
Among other actions taken include the targeted opening of County Government facilities by Monday, May 18. Also, County Libraries will begin opening in phases and in compliance with the governor’s 25 percent capacity recommendation and Centers for Disease Control recommendations for social distancing and sanitization.
