The beaches are still only for physical activity in Flagler County, but they will open 24/7.

Flagler County will reopen its beaches on Sunday, April 26, with some restrictions on allowed activities. 

On Wednesday, all beaches in the county opened with time restrictions, and county officials said they would see whether the public could handle the rules of social distancing. 

According to WJCT News partner News4Jax, beginning Sunday at 7 a.m., the beaches will be opened 24/7. 

Still, the beach is open for physical activities only, including walking, biking, surfing, and fishing. Large group gatherings and socializing at the beach are not permitted. 

Additionally, parks in Flagler County will be open from sunrise to sunset. 

The Flagler Beach Boardwalk, Boardwalk bathrooms, city pier and parking in front of the Boardwalk will remain closed.

As a host and reporter for WUSF, my goal is to unearth and highlight issues that wouldn’t be covered otherwise. If I truly connect with my audience as I relay to them the day’s most important stories and make them think about an issue past the point that I’ve said it in a newscast, that’s a success in my eyes.
