Town of Essex Council has voted to close Colchester Beach until further notice.

The town says that the beach saw a large number of visitors over the weekend, and that the crowds created challenges for beach-goers to follow the physical distancing requirements recommended by public health officials.

“We recognize that many of our residents and their families love to visit Colchester Beach but, unfortunately, the large volume of people created significant concerns for Colchester residents and Town staff,” said Mayor Larry Snively. “While Colchester Beach is a destination for many people in our community and beyond, Council felt that this is a necessary step to ensure the safety of everybody so our region can move into phase 2 as soon as possible.”

Prior to reopening, the Town will look to enhance procedures to ensure Colchester Beach continues to be a family-friendly destination for residents and visitors.
