MATAGORDA COUNTY, Tx – As the weather warms up and summer is itching closer, Matagorda County officials reopened county beaches just in time.
In a Facebook post, officials said that all beach areas will open Friday along with surrounding businesses as long as they can operate on a “to-go” basis. Gatherings of 10 or more are prohibited and visitors must maintain social distancing.
The county also opened fishing piers and boat ramps for visitors to use. While public restrooms are closed, beach officials will be placing port-a-potties in some areas of the beaches.
Matagorda County is reminding residents that they are currently under a burn ban, thus prohibiting beach bonfires.
