A northern Indiana city is closing its beaches.
Michigan City is closing its public lakefront for a week, beginning Friday, Aug, 14.
Mayor Duane Parry made the announcement on Thursday evening.
Parry blames “large crowds” that gather on the lakefront. The crowds have not been wearing masks or properly social distancing, he said.
The mayor is also extending his existing order to close Washington Park, Fedder’s Alley and the senior center, according to WBBM Radio.
