Lifeguarding Involves Pandemic Precautions Image
At Burying Hill Beach today, lifeguard Matthew Navon, 20, was on duty, the first day this season for town-operated beaches. “Although lifeguard duty hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., we start at 9:30 and finish at 6:30 to allow time to sanitize all equipment twice a day,” he said. “Also, I sit on a special towel on the lifeguard stand so my body is not touching the fixture.” Navon, a Westport resident and Staples High School graduate, class of 2018, will enter his junior year in the fall at Syracuse University.
