There was confusion and anger May 29 as residents of Wakefield noticed new signs had been installed at the beach by the river across from Turntable Park and near public docks in the village prohibiting loitering and swimming.


Signs erected near public docks in Wakefield prohibiting “loitering and swimming” caused an uproar among residents. The signs have since been replaced with new ones encouraging social distancing and regular wash hand-washing. Stuart Benson photo
