Nassau County Executive Laura Curran says the county's progress against COVID-19 is "so far, so good."
"Today's progress is thanks to you, to the residents of Nassau County, who worked together through some challenging times and flattened the curve," says Curran.
Curran announced that all six of the county pools will now be opened for county residents – including the pools at beaches and beach clubs.
In addition, county parks and playgrounds will be open as of tomorrow at all 67 playgrounds. Also, on Sunday, the RV campground at Nickerson Beach will reopen.
Currans says all seven of the county's dog parks and dog runs will also be reopening.
Officials also announced a new initiative where food trucks will be at Eisenhower Park throughout the summer season.
As of Friday, there were 123 COVID-19-related hospitalizations – and 55 new cases reported. The number accounts for less than 1% of all of those tested.
Although officials say the county is doing well, they are urging residents to wear face masks and practice social distancing.
"We understand the importance of face coverings, social distancing and proper protocols. This is the key to opening safely," says Curran.
Officials say the county is monitoring metrics daily to see how it is measuring up.
