The National Conservation Commission (NCC), which has responsibility for lifeguards, is encouraging the public to go to beaches which have lifeguard stations.
NCC’s General Manager, Ryan Als, noted that public safety remains paramount, especially at this time, and urged members of the public to swim at lifeguard supervised beaches.
He said it is also important for the public to follow the instructions given by the lifeguards; to wear face masks for onshore activities; and observe physical distancing protocols. These measures are being taken to protect the public and lifeguards against contracting COVID-19.
NCC’s Special Projects Officer, Ricardo Marshall, provided the list of beaches currently supervised by lifeguards.
They are: Crane Beach, St. Philip; Enterprise, Maxwell, Dover and Rockley Beaches in Christ Church; Graves’ End/Needhams Point, Browne’s Beach North, Browne’s Beach South, Brandons Beach and Batts Rock in St. Michael; Folkestone Beach, St. James; Bathsheba, St. Joseph; and Bath Beach, St. John.
