COVID-19 Town of Ocean Ridge Update

Dear Residents,

Many of you could choose to live anywhere in the world. We chose to live in Ocean Ridge because it is a small, welcoming and tightknit community. We love the beach, we love interacting with our neighbors, we love our freedom and we love our safety. I ask that we embrace these strong core values as the Town continues to transition to our “new normal”.

Today the Palm Beach County Commissioners approved Emergency Order #6 to tentatively re-open both private and public beaches on Monday, May 18.  The Commission will meet again on Friday, May 15 to review the order and could approve as written, amend the order, or rescind it based on the data that is available at that time.

Until then, we ask all residents to remain vigilant and patient.  Our goal is and always will be the safety of our residents and staff. We are a strong commUNITY!

Stay Safe and Be Well.

Warm regards,

Mayor,  Ocean Ridge
