People pack the beaches on Okaloosa Island, Fla., Saturday, May 23, 2020, as the long Memorial Day weekend begins. Vacationers from Texas, Georgia, Alabama, and Arkansas have crowded the reopened beaches after the lifting of many state's stay-at-home restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - The Memorial Day weekend marking the unofficial start of summer in the U.S. meant big crowds at beaches and warnings from authorities Sunday about people disregarding the coronavirus social-distancing rules and risking a resurgence of the scourge that has killed nearly 100,000 Americans.

Meanwhile, the White House broadened its travel ban against countries hard hit by the virus by saying it would deny admission to foreigners who have recently been in Brazil.
