Ways to Cool Off

Many beaches in our area close after Labor Day. Beaches in New York state are permitted to be open at no more than half capacity. Social distancing is required, meaning beach goers must maintain a six-foot distance from others. When that is not possible, masks are required. It is important we all do our part to prevent more cases of COVID-19. Because people could carry the virus and not have any symptoms, it is important for everyone to wear a mask for the safety of others.

Scroll down to the map below to explore some little-known swim spots for cooling off!
