The Labor Day holiday weekend has historically brought large gatherings of people to the beaches in the Town of Palm Beach. Due to the continued status of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Town believes it is in the best health interest of the community that large gatherings on the beach be prevented. The most effective way in which to prevent the threat of virus spread from these anticipated gatherings is through a beach closure. Per Emergency Order No. 2020-04 the Town has decided to close all public beaches (guarded and unguarded) and public access points during the Labor Day weekend (September 5-7). Phipps Ocean Park (except for Tennis Center) as well as the green spaces adjacent to Mid-Town Beach will be also be closed on these dates.
