Public restrooms to reopen at Volusia County beaches on Saturday
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – Just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, restrooms and showers at Volusia County beaches will reopen to members of the public but those who need to use the facilities are reminded to wash their hands and practice good hygiene to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Volusia County Council Chair Ed Kelley made the announcement Wednesday afternoon during a coronavirus news briefing alongside other local leaders. He said county council members pushed to get the beachside bathrooms opened as soon as possible.

Council members are expected to discuss and potentially finalize the phases of reopening Volusia County during Tuesday’s meeting.
