As more folks flock to Pinellas County beaches now that they’re open, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has launched a tool that will help beach-goers plan their day.
A link on the Sheriff’s Office website will list all beaches in the county and alert folks if it is beach is open, reaching capacity, or closed. It will also indicate whether parking is available.
While the dashboard won't be active Monday through Friday, the Sheriff's Department is still monitoring crowds and breaking up groups of more than 10 to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus. It is also providing updates on its Twitter account.
