Virginia Governor Ralph Northam eased the state’s Coronavirus restrictions on beaches and water activities after thousands of sunbathers flocked to the shoreline as temperatures approached 80 degrees.

“That didn’t keep crowds away from Virginia Beach over the weekend as temperatures reached the high 70s. Sunbathers took to the sand, bikers peddled along the bustling boardwalk and newly reopened gift shops were crowded with customers buying hermit crabs and snow cones,” reports Fox News.

“Following the weekend crowds, Northam announced during a press conference Monday that Virginia Beach would be allowed to reopen May 22 at the start of Memorial Day weekend, which normally kicks off the coast’s busy summer tourism season,” adds Fox.
