For anyone contemplating a trip to Jones Beach:. The parking lot of the nature center is being used as a covid drive through test area. You will not be permitted to go past the booth where you pay your fee. This means that access to the west end and coast guard station area is shut down.
Good spot to avoid, as this could be a covid-19 transmission hotspot. Can't say for certain how long this will go on, but I heard it may be through the summer.
