    Walton County Lifts Burn Ban; Reinstates Beach Bonfire and Special Event Permits

    During today’s Walton County Board of County Commissioner’s (BCC) meeting, held at the DeFuniak Springs Courthouse at 9:00 am on Tuesday, May 26, the BCC took several actions in regard to COVID-19.

    The first of these actions was to reinstate the following:

    1. Reinstatement of beach bonfire permits as permitted by the South Walton Fire District.

    2. Reinstatement of special event permitting as allowed in the Walton County Waterways and Beach Activities Ordinance.

    The reinstatement of both of these items will only be permitted for groups of 10 or less, and must adhere to the Center for Disease Control’s social distancing guidelines.

    Additionally, today, the BCC has lifted the local Walton County burn ban effective immediately.

    The BCC also took action to extend the County’s Local State of Emergency regarding COVID-19.

    From Walton County Emergency Management:

    Quick Update to Provide Clarity on Numbers

    We wanted to take a minute to provide everyone with a quick update on the numbers that we have been reporting.

    As many of you are aware, we have held 3 drive-thru testing events, Santa Rosa Beach, Freeport and DeFuniak Springs, in which DOH-Walton conducted 1192 tests.

    While the full results are not on the dashboard, the positive numbers from those events have been added to the dashboard. Of those 1,192 tests, there were only 6 positives recorded and they have been manually uploaded to the state dashboard.

    The negatives, 1,186, have not yet been updated to the DOH dashboard due to a technical issue with the lab reporting system but will be added in the near future.

    The current testing number counts is: Walton County has a total of 2922 total tests conducted resulting in 109 positives and 2812 negatives. There is also 1 inconclusive listed on the dashboard.

    In addition to the 3 drive-thru events that have been held, there was an additional testing done in Paxton today and there will be on at the Mossy Head Elementary School on June 4 from 9AM to Noon. Those numbers will be added to the dashboard soon.
