Two recent Emergency Orders from Palm Beach County reopened beaches and eased restrictions on other recreational activities.
- Emergency Order Number 6 opened all public, municipal, and private beaches from sunrise to sunset, with certain restrictions. Emergency Order 6 can be found here.
- Emergency Order Number 7 eased restrictions on Parks and Natural Areas, Boating and Marine Activities, Golf, Tennis Courts, and Community Pools. Emergency Order 7 can be found here.
- A third Emergency Order, Number 8, renewed a recommendation for facial coverings, specifically for those in grocery stores and all locations where social distancing is not possible. Emergency Order 8 can be found here.
The Town of Gulf Stream “strongly urges” all residents to wear facial coverings while in public. Please note that surgical masks and N95 rated masks are in critical supply for health care workers and first responders, so we encourage the use of a scarf, bandana, handkerchief or other similar cloth covering secured in place snugly covering the nose and mouth. Senior Citizens and individuals with a significant underlying medical condition as those who should be particularly careful and stay at home. We recommend that Gulf Stream residents adhere to the CDC recommendations regarding social distancing when not at home. Anyone entering Gulf Stream from an area with substantial community spread, is recommended to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.

In 1916, the State of Florida began to open a stretch of roadway along the Atlantic Ocean coastline, as a more scenic alternative to Route 1, now called the Federal Highway. The road eventually became known as State Road A1A. To address high winds along the route, Australian Pines were planted along both sides of A1A, from Jacksonville to Miami. The Town of Gulf Stream is the only remaining stretch where the Australian Pine Canopy still remains. It has since been designated as an historic and scenic highway, allowing the Town to protect and cultivate new plants to maintain and expand a stand of more than 300 pines… Read more about the town
