The beaches officially open to the public this Memorial Day weekend. The Gloucester Daily Times reports it is not clear where the Narcan would be located or how it would be available. Public Health Director Karin Carroll said there would be two doses at Good Harbor, Wingersheek and Half Moon beaches, and two doses at the other sites.

There will be a series of free classes about preventing overdoses and administering Narcan this summer. PAARI is holding the classes and the Gloucester Daily Times reports more information will be posted on its website.
