To mirror what was in place during the Memorial Day holiday, Collier County beaches will be closed 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the Independence Day holiday weekend. The county commissioners’ action was taken during a special meeting Tuesday morning after Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties announced the closing of their beaches for the upcoming weekend because of an increase of coronavirus cases. The weekend restrictions for Collier beach hours will continue as long as beaches in Miami-Dade and Broward counties are closed. The commission also encourages people to wear face masks indoors in public places during the pandemic.
