Jackson County beaches remain open
In Jackson County, there are currently no restrictions or plans to close down beaches at this time.
County Administrator Brian Fulton says officials monitored the beaches over the weekend and observed only small and more socially isolated crowds.
Any future decision regarding beaches would be made by the Jackson County Board of Supervisors. Still Fulton stresses that people maintain social distancing and follow federal guidelines if they decided to go out to the beach. “Follow the CDC guidelines and the information that’s out there about crowds, about crowding. I would discourage crowds of ten or more people, according to the guidelines.”
The Jackson County Board of Supervisors is set to meet for a regularly scheduled meeting on April 6th.
