SAINT AUGUSTINE – News from the City of St. Augustine:
“Please join the City of St. Augustine Beach for a different type of Arbor Day event – a TREE GIVEAWAY at the
Wednesday Pier Farmers Market
on July 22, from 8:00am – noon.
Due to COVID-19, the City of St. Augustine Beach had to cancel its beloved annual Arbor Day event originally scheduled in April.
A favorite tradition of the Arbor Day event is the giving away of the trees to the public, especially kids.
So please GIVE A TREE A HOME!
City hall is now closed: Starting Thursday, July 16, City Hall
will close to the public (with the exception of public comments for advertised hearings)
in a continued effort to prevent community
spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
This closure will not prevent customers from conducting all necessary City business because online, telephone, and e-mail services will remain operational.
As positive cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to rise in St. Johns County, and in an effort to minimize the risk of people gathering in crowds without the ability to safely social distance, the City of St. Augustine has decided to cancel the remaining scheduled performances of the 30th Anniversary season for Concerts in the Plaza.
Questions may be directed to Kimberly Mayo, Events and Venue Coordinator, at 904.825.1004 or via email at events@CityStAug.comSt. Johns County and Flagler Health+ are offering free drive-thru COVID-19 testing Monday through Friday beginning Thursday, July 9, at Flagler Hospital, 400 Health Park Blvd. The testing site will be located in Parking Lot B and will remain open from 7:00am to 11:00am, or until the maximum number of daily tests are collected.
