An Important Message From Beacon’s Mayor Lee Kyriacou

Dear Beacon Resident, 

This is Mayor Lee Kyriacou with some Beacon updates.

COVID Counts:  Active COVID-19 cases continue to decline – the county number is down below 1,800; in Beacon we are down to 107.  While our region hasn’t qualified to start opening up, we are close.

Memorial Day Weekend:  With summer weather beckoning us outdoors, we must stay true to state emergency orders to slow the spread of COVID-19, while safely enjoying our parks and public places.  Here are key reminders.

Social Distancing:  First and foremost, in public, maintain social distancing – six feet.

Face Covering:  Second, if you cannot maintain social distancing in public, then you must wear a face covering.

Gatherings:  Non-essential gatherings remain postponed or canceled.

Parks:  City of Beacon parks are open – with limits, signage and monitoring.  Playgrounds and courts are closed, and there are no group sports.  Families and households may be together, but otherwise we must maintain social distancing.

Monitoring:  City police and staff continue to monitor public places.  If they see issues, they may ask for your help – please be respectful and responsive.  They have enforcement authority.

Yes, a holiday weekend is coming – in the midst of a pandemic.  Do your part, and we can both continue our social distancing and safely enjoy the outdoors.

Thank you. 

Stay well.
