Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

We continue to update this article as we receive notifications of cancellations or temporary closures from local government officials or businesses.

  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates for St. Augustine:

    April 1, 2020. Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-91. This "Stay-at-Home" order effectively closes non-essential businesses, which includes all tourist attractions and gift shops. Restaurants that provide meals to take-out or that deliver meals, hotels, and adult beverage stores are among those allowed to stay open.

    This article contains up-to-date information about what's open and what's closed in the St. Augustine area. We are continuing to update this information as we receive notifications of openings, closings, and cancellations by businesses, event organizers, and local and state government officials. While we try hard to maintain accuracy in these lists of open and closed businesses, things are happening fast, and we recommend you always call ahead to confirm.

    For information about precautions and healthcare recommendations in general about the Coronavirus emergency, visit the Center for Disease Control website.

    There is no fee to park in city lots and spaces. There is a $15.00 daily fee to park in the city garage.


    While travel is discouraged, for now, dreaming is not.

    We at VisitStAugustine are working from home and look forward to answering your questions about your future visit to the Historic City of St. Augustine.

    Can we still fish at the Inner coastal in St Augustine?

    To Bobbie and all who fish: You can absolutely still launch a boat and enjoy the Intra Coastal waters. We've seen folks fishing, water-skiing, kayaking, and simply taking a boat ride. As of late in March, boats were required to have no more than 10 onboard (no matter the size of the vessel) and could not anchor or beach with 50 feet of another boat. Being on the water is a great way to socially isolate as long as you socially isolate when you are on the water.

    I am open as well! We're brand new.... Have breakfast & tons of Treats! Biscuits & Gravy, Breakfast Sandwiches, Pastries, Grits Cups your choice of meat, Belgian Waffles with fresh fruit, French Toast, Pancakes, Gelato Pops dipped & much more. Text or call orders to 904-315-8348. Super clean and sanitized!

    The Floridian Restaurant is open, hours are 11am-8pm. Offering online ordering, curbside pickup, delivery, and limited dining on our ope-air patio. Also offering family-style meals starting at $20 for 2 people (one protein and 3 sides, including dessert). Please add us to your "open" list! Our employees so appreciate the community support.

    Are the beaches closed now or are the public access points still open?

    As you can see in the above article, After this question was submitted, St. Johns County closed the beaches, effective Sunday, March 29 at 6:00 a.m. It is our understanding that no one may be on the beaches in St. Johns County until further notice. 

    Jax just shut down all public Accesses and says they will be patrolling the beach charging people with trespassing charges. Is there hope to grab a few waves in st Aug Saturday morning or is that going to be a no go too?

    I just spoke with the St. Augustine Beach Services office and was told that they have received no directives to close the beaches. 

    All beach goers are encouraged to limit groups to ten or fewer, and maintain the 6 foot separation.  Enjoy the fresh air and U/V light ! 

    (March 20, 2020 12:53 p.m.)

    Are private beaches closed, too? What if you own a house or condo on the beach; can you be on the beach, go fishing?

    There are no private beaches in this county. Just because one owns a home or condo on the ocean front does not give them ownership below the high-tide mark. The beaches belong to everyone. Please, everyone, be aware of that.

    Yes, thank you Rusty. No private beaches, they belong to all

    Lizzy Ann, so many folks are asking this question !

    Hi! It looks like the Villa Zorayda is actually closed until further notice. Although you list it as open. Just thought i would mention it.

    Is Micklers beach open 3/20/20

    Have reservations at B&B starting 3/28/20 for 3 nights in historic district. Is beach open? So far B&B still open

    Ice Plant Bar and Vintage Restaurant is closed but will reopen when allowed

    The Pink Pineapple Boutique will remain open normal business hours. Monday-Saturday 10-7; Sunday 12-5

    So, I Have hotel reservation for the 21-22 at the Hampton Inn, St Augustine Beach. Do you know if open? I tried calling. Also is Red Lobster open? Really considering staying home,due to everything being closed down. Some birthday for me, this year.

    Just FYI...we are presently in Panama City Beach and got the news that the beaches have closed down. We just got here yesterday
    And because all of the State and National Parks closed, we have decided to go home even though we are in a self contained Roadtrek van.
    It's just no fun and there's no place to stay. Well, Walmart parking lots I guess but really? I just can't do it. We may drive straight through back to
    Rochester NY
    If beaches stayed open I wouldn't hate staying at Walmart but whats the point? Save your money and when this all blows over go on a belated birthday trip.

    Bye Bye Fla.

    We have not heard from the Red Lobster and do suggest you call them. We did hear from the Hampton Inn and they are open. From their website, I assume Red Lobster is as well. Hope you have a great birthday, no matter where you celebrate.


    SONNYS BARBQUE on US1 IS STILL OPEN TILL 8pm. For dine in and takeout. At least for now. We might be doing takeout and curbside soon. Call 8243206. Thanks.

    Is there a curfew for St. Augustine residents and surrounding areas at this time?

    Hello Natasha,

    We have not heard anything about curfews. If you hear more about this we would love to know!

    That's a really short list of restaurants open. We've never been there before. Have most restaurants closed?

    Hi Shane,

    This is just a list of restaurants that have confirmed that they are open. I recommend calling any restaurants that you are interested in dining at before hand. Here you can find a complete list of restaurants

    Will hotels/motels waive cancellations fee?

    Hi Doug,

    Waived cancellation fees varies per hotel and motel. I recommend calling to find out more information. 

    We will be driving to St. Augustine this evening. Are beaches and restaurants still open and are local grocery stores open even if with limited hours?

    Hi Veronica,

    Bars and Clubs are closing for 30 days as of today and restaurants are required to have less than 50% occupancy. Walmart has adjusted hours (6am to 11pm) and Publix closes at 8pm everyday now. 

    Hi! We are planning on coming next week. Is there any thought that the actual beach may be shut down??

    Miami beaches and destin beaches have closed so it wouldn’t be surprising if st Augustine beaches did.

    Hi Kiana,

    As of right now the beaches are open. 

    We are in Ohio and have reservations at Byrm Mauer Campground Thursday 19th-Friday 27th. Trying to figure out if we should go. Everything in Ohio has closed except for gas stations and grocery stores. We would hate to get there and everything closes. Does it look like campgrounds are going to close too.

    Hello Kathy,

    I spoke with Bryn Mawr Campground, and they are currently open and doing business as usual.  They are monitoring the Florida Department of Health's Twitter posts at 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. for updates.

    We have a VRBO scheduled for the first week in April. What is the forecast for into the future? Are beaches going to be closed?

    I’m supposed to get married this weekend at River to Sea and then dinner reception at Catch 27. Our wedding hugest count is 12+ bride and groom. Any suggestions on moving forward with this wedding? Will there be a city wide restaurant closure? (Is Catch 27 open?) helllllp!

    Best thing to do is call the places and people you need to call. Congratulations on your marriage!

    Schooner Seafood house is open as well!!

    Any updates on the beaches, surfing, ect...?

    If you go to the St Johns County Sheriff’s Facebook they show what’s open and closed
    Good luck

    Are the beaches still open? We have reservations for March 17 - 19.

    My daughter is planning a trip to the beach on the 29th and I just read where Miami and Ft Lauderdale have closed the beach. Will St. Augustine do the same? How often is the information updated? Thank you

    Is visitor center open?

    Hi, Maureen.

    As of today, the Visitor Information Center is open. We will update this article if and when that changes.

    No visitors center closed March 17 until further notice along with trolleys and trains and many museums some shops no bars open for 30 days.
