|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.
