Water purifiers are being added to a number of beaches in Florida, including those in Palm Beach, Daytona Beach and Orlando.
A spokesperson for the state health department said they are “part of the state’s efforts to protect our citizens from the risks of indoor air pollution.”
The water purification equipment is intended to filter water from people, pets and pets’ waste.
The state health agency said in a statement that it was adding them because of the increased number of water-related illnesses.
The department said the water purifying equipment was being installed in the following areas: Beachfront Park, Beach City, Fort Lauderdale, St. Johns, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Miami Gardens.
There are also new water-purifying equipment at beaches in Lake Worth, Lake Okeechobee, Coral Gables, Coral Springs and Miami Lakes.
Officials said there is no evidence to suggest that water purifications are linked to an increase in cases of COVID-19.
The water-protection equipment is being installed to help protect the public from the increasing number of COIDS cases in the state.
The latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that the state is seeing an increase of the coronavirus.
Florida saw more than 50,000 cases last year and the state has recorded more than 3,400 cases.
In addition, Florida has seen an increase this year of more than 7,000 people who have tested positive for COVID.
The health department is currently adding water purificators at several other beaches in the Orlando area.
The Department of Health and Human Services announced last week that it is adding water-pulverizers to all of the beaches in Central Park.
The health department has added the equipment in the parks surrounding the park, including Beach City Park, Biscayne Bay Park, Clearwater Beach Park, Coral Gardens Park, St Johns Park, and Boca Rayo Park.
Water purification machines are being installed at the park.
There are no plans for water purifies to be added at any of the other beaches currently under water purifyments.
The State Health Department said it will not be adding water machines to any beach currently under purification until after a full evaluation of the water quality and water quantity.
Rick Scott signed an executive order in March that allows the state to start replacing some of the more than 500,000 outdoor water filters it already has.
Some beachfront parks have already begun removing water-filled toilets and replacing them with reusable ones.
Scott also signed an order in July allowing the state park system to install water purging equipment.
The order will allow park managers to choose to install the equipment and not have to replace it.
