Bulldozers were seen flattening the sand along a beach in Indialantic, Florida, on April 29, two days before beaches in the area were set to reopen after a statewide COVID-19 lockdown.

Indialantic beaches were set to reopen on Friday, May 1, according to Florida Today, in accordance with regulations signed by Indialantic Mayor Dave Berman.

Sunbathers and people playing sports would be welcome on the city’s beaches, along with those in nearby Cocoa Beach and Satellite Beach, but could only assemble in groups of five or less. Credit: Alex Schoedel via Storyful
