The Nassau County Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday evening to reopen its beaches on Friday.

County beaches will be open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day for most normal activities, such as swimming, sitting, fishing, surfing and laying out. Beachgoers will be required to practice social distancing and to limit groups to no more than 10 people. County attorney Mike Mullin told News4Jax that deputies with the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office probably won’t issue citations unless people are adamant and refusing.

For now, beachgoers will not be allowed to camp, ride horses, drive or park on the beach, but commissioners said they will regroup in a week to discuss reopening beaches to commercial activities.
