Rehoboth Beach to Open Beach and Boardwalk with Restrictions

Although the state of Delaware doesn’t have plans to begin a re-opening until at least June 1, the state’s most popular beach community is beginning its plans to reopen.

Mayor Paul Kuhns announced the beach and boardwalk will reopen on Friday, May 15, with mandatory limitations.

Residents will be allowed to walk and exercise from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. Exercise is described as “an activity requiring physical effort carried out to sustain health and fitness.”

The boardwalk will be open for the public to access local businesses.

When visiting the beach and boardwalk, visitors must wear a face covering, maintain at least six feet of social distancing and keep gatherings at 10 people or less.

Bikes will be allowed on the boardwalk. Leashed dogs will be permitted on the beach from May 15 through May 29. Public restrooms will be open at Rehoboth, Baltimore and Delaware Avenues.

Swimming, surfing and loitering won’t be allowed. Parking meters and permits will also be suspended.
