City of Galveston, TX
 
Just came across this. Class C misdemeanor for noncompliance!
 
"Two orders are in effect as of Sunday afternoon, March 29, 2020 at 2:45 p.m. closing all public beaches in Galveston and restricting vehicle traffic on the beach west of the end of the Seawall. By state law, this order is in effect for seven days until Sunday, April 5, 2020.
 
The orders are part of the City of Galveston's response to the COVID-19 public health crisis. As of Saturday afternoon, the most recent reporting, the Galveston County Health District had confirmed 60 cases of COVID-19 within the county. The City of Galveston's top priority is the health and safety of its residents and it is in guidance from federal and local health authorities that these actions are being taken.
The City of Galveston has implemented a series of orders under a March 16, 2020 emergency declaration signed by Mayor Jim Yarbrough to prevent the community spread of COVID-19.
 
The City of Galveston had attempted to avoid closing public beaches because it is our desire that residents have an area to exercise and get fresh air while maintaining safe social distancing. However, it is clear that there are many people visiting from other areas in defiance of local, state and national travel recommendations and/or restrictions. As a result, the City of Galveston must restrict access to the public beach. The Texas General Land Office will not allow the beach to remain open to residents only. As a public beach, it must be closed to all.
 
We look forward to welcoming visitors back to Galveston as soon as these orders have been lifted.
 
Under these two orders, which are attached, it shall be a Class C misdemeanor if a person is found in violation of the order related to the closure of Galveston public beaches. These orders are enforced by the Galveston Police Department, the City Marshal's Office and the Galveston Beach Patrol."

Glad they did it. Pictures have been circulating of huge crowds as recently as today, all huddled closely.
