Flagler County Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord said, “The number of positive COVID-19 cases in the state – and elsewhere in the country – continue to rise,” said Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord. “We have to balance individuals’ desires to be out and about with the safety of the entire community. We are trying to limit areas where social distancing and sanitation may be more difficult to regulate.”

In the County, all beaches, parks, community centers, pavilions, camping areas, and associated facilities, like parking lots and restrooms are closed until further notice.  Lord says this emergency order also encompasses all facilities of the parks and community centers, including parking lots, restrooms, dune walkovers, and the dry sand beach.
