Satellite Beach and Cocoa Beach have reopened beaches for sunbathing, sitting in chairs and all other activities within city limits during the coronavirus pandemic with groups limited five people or fewer.
“The City would like to thank our community for continuing to abide by the social distancing measures we have put in place at our beaches to safeguard our residents during this pandemic response,” Satellite Beach City Manager Courtney Barker wrote. “Since these measures have been put in place, the beaches have been areas of strong compliance, while still giving our residents a place to exercise and relax,”.
Cocoa Beach’s beachgoers must practice social distancing of at least 6 feet in all directions. Beach parking, beach access parking and the downtown parking garage will remain closed.
The Indian Harbour Beach City Council will discuss the topic of opening beaches while Indialantic Mayor Dave Berkman will likely make a beach announcement after Cocoa Beach-Satellite Beach’s newest regulations.
