Check with your local area on beach closings. Each beach town or county is currently operating on their own rules.

Check with your area on boat ramp closings. Some anglers are forced to use their private docks.
Social Distancing in the Great Outdoors
Angling adheres to all the rules of social distancing. Indeed, isolation is one of fishing’s greatest benefits. You’re trying to avoid other people, especially those out to steal your spot. There’s nothing quite like a still morning as the sun rises, the fog lifts, and you find yourself alone in an inlet of prime habitat.
