If you were planning to spend this Fourth of July weekend at the beach, you might want to make other arrangements.

Palm Beach County has become the latest county in Florida that plans to close all beaches this weekend in an attempt to stop the further spread of the coronavirus.

In a statement to our news partners at WPTV Mayor Dave Kerner said the order will go into effect on Thursday and will end on Sunday:

“I’ve given direction to the county administrator to prepare an order that will close all beaches in Palm Beach County Thursday through Sunday.”

This comes as the state has been experiencing record cases of the virus since reopening some businesses and public areas.

Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have also implemented similar orders.
