UPDATED June 24, 2020 – Mayor De Blasio announced New York City beaches will be opening for swimming on July 1 after all. “Let’s keep playing it safe: social distance and face coverings, even at the beach,” de Blasio said in a tweet on Tuesday.
In addition to beaches, Lyon’s Pool and Tottenville Pool will open on August 1.
Although playgrounds are open, spray showers will remain off for now.
So far, the phased openings haven’t resulted in any Covid-19 surges. The latest statistics indicate very few of those tested in Staten Island this week were positive for the virus.
