In an effort to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, St. Lucie County will be closing access to all county beaches on North and South Hutchinson Island effective Monday, March 23 at 8 a.m. until further notice.
St. Lucie County’s Emergency Management team has been monitoring the use of beaches and outdoor facilities since last week regarding the public’s participation in following the social distancing guidelines from the Center for Disease Control. Unfortunately, residents and visitors are not following the CDC’s recommendations of limiting unnecessary travel and avoiding gatherings of more than 10 people. If residents continue to disregard these recommendations, additional closures are likely to continue.
