Palm Beach County Mayor Dave Kerner announced on CNN Sunday that he will issue an order to close all Palm Beach County beaches for the holiday weekend.
"In consultation with our county administrator, we will be issuing an order tomorrow, tomorrow morning, that will close the Palm Beach County beaches throughout the entirety of the county for the holiday weekend. It is an unfortunate result, but public health remains the focus of the elected leaders of Palm Beach County," Kerner said. "Unfortunately, this 4th of July will not be spent at the beach."
Mayors in Miami and Fort Lauderdale have also announced beach closures for the holiday weekend.
