SHOULD GLOUCESTER CLOSE BEACHES TO NON-RESIDENTS?

Folks at Good Harbor Beach this afternoon practicing physical distancing 

Over the weekend many more beaches and beach parking lots closed across the state. Massachusetts DCR State Beaches such as Winthrop Shores Reservation, Revere, Swampscott, and Nahant joined other North Shore communities (Crane Beach, along with Ipswich and Newbury town beaches, for example) in closing to non-residents.

Should Gloucester close her beaches to non-residents? Please write and let us know what you think (and why).

The good news is that State Parks across the Commonwealth are opening early. Massachusetts owns more 450,000 acres of recreational property. Several of the State Parks listed below are beaches, which are now closed, but many are not.

Here is a link to Massachusetts State Parks, alphabetically listed by town.

State Parks by region.

Not everyone though is following GHB guidelines

    Hi Kim,

    Yes they should close to prevent unnecessary spread. When the sun comes out people will be flocking to the beach from all over. There will be masses of crowds like Mardi Gras. We know how that turned out.

    Thanks! Jennie Meyer.
