Coast beaches empty after stay-at-home order

We got our first look this weekend at beaches along the Mississippi Coast after they were shut down for the state’s stay-at-home order that took effect Friday evening.

In Ocean Springs and Gulfport, people listened to signs and stickers placed at beach entryways alerting them of the closures, making for quiet beach scenes.

However, boardwalks still had their share of people out and about getting their personal exercise in, from running to biking. Boardwalks continue to remain open for that purpose.

The shelter in place order currently remains in effect until April 20th at 8 a.m.
