Beach monitoring and seawater sampling at Milford beaches began on June 1, 2022

Recreational waters are tested weekly for specific indicator bacteria.  There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of recreational waters.  As such, the CT Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention do not recommend testing these waters for COVID-19.  The Milford Health Department encourages all residents to follow safe swimming practices along with social distancing and everyday preventive actions to protect yourself and prevent the spread of disease.

All Milford Beaches are currently open.

The status of beaches is available by calling the Milford Health Department at (203) 783-3285.  

The status of Silver Sands State Beach is available by calling (866) 287-2757.
