We, the residents of Mattituck and Laurel, are fortunate to have beautiful beaches within our community. As the summer season is quickly approaching, the Commissioners of the Mattituck Park District are mindful that, now more than ever, the use and enjoyment of the beaches are critical to maintaining our residents’ general welfare.
However, to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 virus it is crucial that certain policies are adhered to so the beaches may remain open. This will take the full cooperation of our community to ensure that the most vulnerable of our neighbors continue to be protected.
With that in mind, effective immediately the beaches shall only be used by residents of the Park District. Additionally, there shall be no swimming (until lifeguards can safely come back to work), physical distancing of six feet shall be maintained between individuals who do not cohabitate, and there shall be no congregating in the parking lots.
Thank you for your understanding, patience and hopefully soon we can move on from this “New Abnormal”, and get back to normal and enjoy the beaches, and all of our parks and other sites as they have been historically used. Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend and stay safe.
