The Vero Beach City Council voted Tuesday to allow beach access to only city residents and residents of Indian River County.

The restrictions will be in place from 7 a.m. Friday to 10 p.m. Sunday.

The Vero Beach Police Department also tweeted that parking enforcement will also be in effect with no parking on grass areas.

These restrictions come a day after Palm Beach County issued an order, closing all beaches this weekend.

The move comes after similar actions by Miami-Dade and Broward counties to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
