Aerial Drone Video Of Deserted Clearwater Beach

The city of Clearwater FL closed it’s popular beach after spring-breakers were not following social distancing guidelines. Officials were concerned that beach-goers could further spread the CoronaVirus to their parents and grandparents. Here is drone video after the beach closing.

From Fox-13 Tampa Bay : Earlier in the week, the county ordered all Pinellas County beaches to close promptly at 11:59 p.m. on Friday night. This order overrode a previous decision by the city of Clearwater to shut down the beach this coming Monday. 😥

Some visitors, however, did not get the memo. “We woke up at 4:30 in the morning thinking we were going to get here, get a spot, and come to find out there’s a cop right near the parking lot where we were going to go, and they told us that the beach was closed,” said Caprice Burrell from Davenport.

Others tried to test their luck by venturing out on the beach. Clearwater police quickly showed up to kick them off. However, some locals said the empty beach is just a reminder of the vacant stores and restaurants just down the street. Most everything is closed too.

Boring day so i decided to blog this tidbit. A good opportunity to get used to WordPress Gutenberg block editor. It’s really sweet and much easier than the previous tinymce editor to blog this and that.
