Local Florida Officials Close Statewide Beaches to Minimize Coronavirus Spread

Local Florida officials announced the statewide closing of beaches.

It's a Coronavirus pandemic as we all know, and we should stay at home, self-isolating, to minimize the spread of the virus. While many celebrities have taken the steps to self-quarantine, some people are still finding it hard to understand the logic behind it.

So, to urge people to stay home, and not to take these lockdowns as their vacations or spring break, Florida came with a brilliant step that could severals from catching the virus.

The official statement read, "Tomorrow, countywide, new measures will take effect that include the closure of all beaches, parks, additional recreational venues, and many businesses. For our City and community, I believe these, though painful, were necessary steps, and I let County Mayor Gimenez know I supported them earlier today.

The report further added, "We hope that these extraordinary measures will bring a swifter end to the impact of this deadly virus. I appreciate the understanding of our residents and fully believe we will emerge from this stronger and more united.
