BRUNSWICK, Ga. — A coastal Georgia county is considering banning alcohol from a popular beach on the weekend of the Florida-Georgia football game in nearby Jacksonville, Florida. The Brunswick News reports that the Glynn County Commission will consider the alcohol ban on East Beach on St. Simons Island on Nov. 6 and 7. Commissioners could vote when they meet on Thursday. The Nov. 7 game typically draws crowds to what’s been dubbed “frat beach” on the coastal Georgia island. Commissioners say they want to put a lid on revelry because they’re concerned about COVID-19 infections, citing spikes in cases that the county saw after Memorial Day and Independence Day.
