Grills, tents, coolers, TVs, footballs, jetskis, and kites—and New Haveners soaking in the sun 15 feet apart fron one another—were all out at Lighthouse Point Park Saturday as families celebrated a socially-distanced Independence Day at the beach.
New Haven voters who turn out for the Aug. 11 presidential primaries can expect to see some changes: Poll workers will wear protective gowns and masks.

Voters will have to maintain six feet distance from each other.
