Beaches in Ontario County will stay closed over Memorial Day weekend

Leaders in Ontario County announced on Wednesday that all beaches will remain closed over the Memorial Day Weekend.

This includes Ontario County’s Deep Run Beach and Ontario Beach, as well as Kershaw Park Beach in the City of Canandaigua, Onanda Park and Butler Road Beaches in the Town of Canandaigua, and Sandy Bottom Beach in the Town of Richmond.

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have not yet opened our beaches and for the safety of our residents, the beaches will remain closed to swimming until further notice,” Interim County Administrator Brian Young said. “With the first holiday of summer upon us, we also want to remind residents about the importance of their continued practice of social distancing, use of face coverings, and prohibition of large gatherings.”

Officials are preparing for reopening. They are accepting applications for lifeguards.
