America’s beaches are (mostly) open for Memorial Day Weekend. Here’s what you need to know, state by state, to plan your beach day.
Forbes ~ ” After more than ten weeks on lockdown, America is slowly opening back up and travel restrictions are being eased at precisely the same time that the official beginning of summer is here, releasing tens of millions of people from a purgatorial spring.
Most states, cities, and local municipalities have been preparing for Memorial Day for months. With many “non-essential” businesses still shuttered, tax revenue anemic, and second homeowners and vacation rentals shut out or shut down in many cases, it’s been one of the few bright spots on the calendar where vacation towns and merchants can see a turning point.
The downside is that activities will be limited, many beaches will have strict rules on social distancing, bars and restaurants still may only be able to offer take-out, and coronavirus is still circulating stealthily even on vacation so this is not the time for anyone to be less vigilant.” ~ Forbes
