Limited Beach Hours for St. John’s County Residents

Dear St Johns County Leadership,

During these challenging times we understand the hard decisions you are facing daily to keep our residents safe. We understand that you were forced to close the beaches due to parts of the population not following social distancing guidelines. 
As the surf community of the great City of St. Augustine, we have come together to ask you to consider a common sense solution that would allow residents to recreate but keep the partying and congregating at bay. We petition that beaches be opened to St. John’s County residents with valid ID only, and that they only be open from dawn - 11am. And again from 5pm until dark. This would allow surfers, walkers, fishermen, etc. to engage with the ocean. This is essential to the mental and physical well being of many of our residents.  Brevard County has implemented a similar strategy that appears to be working well. 
We humbly appreciate your consideration. Surfing is a huge part of our lives and one of the safest activities one can engage in right now. We look forward to getting back into our oceans!
