Tennis courts and community pools -
Emergency Order 2020-005 also allows for limited play at outdoor tennis and racquet sports facilities as well as limited use of public and privately owned community pools.
Pool capacity shall be limited to ensure that social distancing in accordance with CDC Guidelines is maintained at all times.
To practice social or physical distancing:
Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms' length) from other people
Do not gather in groups
Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings
- Locker room and shower facilities shall remain closed. Restrooms shall be cleaned and disinfected regularly throughout the day. Soap and water or hand sanitizer and/or disinfectant wipes shall be provided in each restroom.
- Pool deck seating or lounging shall be restricted to ensure social distancing in accordance with CDC Guidelines.
- One or more facility staff or management must be present at each facility location to monitor and ensure compliance with the restrictions within this order.
Pool Monitoring Clarification:
It is acceptable for staff or management to delegate monitoring and compliance responsibilities to board members and community volunteers if they believe the pool can be operated safely and in compliance with the Executive Order. If these accommodations are unsuccessful, the pool should be closed until alternate monitoring arrangements are put in place.

Phil Foster Park and Dubois Park are considered beach parks, and will, therefore, remain closed as long as public beaches are closed. The boat ramp at Phil Foster will be open, but not the beach.
Beaches - Restrictions and conditions for reopening beaches are still being coordinated with Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe counties. For now, all beaches remain closed.
