Like much of Central Florida shutters to prevent the spread of coronavirus, Brevard County’s beaches remain open with heightened restrictions, according to county officials.

A news release sent Friday said all beachgoers are being asked to socially distance themselves from other visitors and to avoid gatherings of more than 10 people. The county has closed all beachside parks and beachside public parking access. Spoil islands and sand bars throughout the county are also off-limits for social gatherings.
