Nassau County playgrounds, beaches and parks reopen after months of virus-related closure

Nassau County Executive Laura Curran is advising everyone to stay safe and be smart.
"We're asking everyone to use common sense," Curran says. "If it looks crowded, please don't use it. We'll have signage up to remind everyone of what the expectations are."
Cuomo recently said New York is on the right path for entering each new phase.
Nassau County pools are expected to be allowed to reopen by July 3.
Officials are reminding people to set down their belongings 10 feet apart from one another. Robert Moses State Park's Field 3 was already at max capacity by 10 a.m.
