Australia will partially reopen Bondi Beach for swimming and surfing on April 28, authorities announced Wednesday.
Paula Masselos, the mayor of Waverley, said access will be provided for surfers and ocean swimmers between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays. All land-based activities on the beach like jogging, sunbathing and gathering socially is still suspended.
“We’ve worked hard to come up with these strict measures as a way of helping people exercise safely in the water and manage strict social distancing,” she said.
The new measures will also be applied to Bronte Beach in eastern Sydney.
