Town asks people to play nice at the beach

A statement from the town released today warned that, unless people adhere to social distancing and beach rules, including closing times, Duxbury Beach might have to be closed.

The statement warns that people who refuse to leave any part of the beach that is closed may be subject to the revocation of their beach sticker and/or monetary fines. It states: “Policing this behavior is taking staff away from our already stressed public safety agencies. Unfortunately, if patrons cannot use the beach responsibly and adhere to rules (including observing the closing times), the Town will have no choice but close the area to the public.”
