Despite ‘long COVID,’ summer should be in full swing with open pools and beaches in NYC

On the bright side of COVID-19 updates, said Mayor Bill de Blasio in his morning briefing this Wednesday, all beaches and pools will be open this year marking a decidedly less restricted summer than last year’s initial crisis allowed for.

De Blasio said all eight New York City public beaches will be open on time starting Saturday, May 29, and all 48 outdoor public pools will be open after the last day of school Saturday, June 26 with social distancing, sanitation, and masks still in place.
