A pair of beaches in Westchester will be open for Memorial Day Weekend as the county continues to see novel coronavirus (COVID-19) hospitalization, infection, and fatality rates continue to trend in the right direction.

Beaches at Playland and Croton Point will be open, though beach-goers will still have to adhere to social distancing protocol to help curb any spread of the virus.

Westchester County Executive George Latimer noted that the Playland amusement park will remain closed through at least the end of July, the Fourth of July fireworks displays at Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla and Friday fireworks have also been canceled for the season.

Latimer said that there are now less than 2,500 active COVID-19 cases in the county, with more than 400 currently hospitalized.
