California Governor Newsom Stay At Home Order
Governor Newsom’s stay at home order permits outdoor activity as long as a safe social distance of six-feet is maintained from people who are not part of the same household.
Although many of our citizens are self-regulating and practicing social distancing, the increased number of people gathering on Laguna Beach trails, beaches and in adjacent parks creates more opportunities for community spread of the virus.
These public parks contain benches, railings and structures that are high-touch areas and could potentially be a source of spread of COVID-19.
The Council determined that closing these areas is prudent to reduce the potential spread of the virus and protect the public.
Laguna Beach Police Department Will Enforce Closures
Laguna Beach Police Department will Increase Monitoring
Citizens who do not comply with the closure orders will receive citations.
Laguna Beach Public Safety
“The safety of the public is our utmost concern, and this decision was not taken lightly by the City Council. We were unanimous that these steps must be taken now in our City to slow the spread of COVID-19. I urge everyone to comply with our actions for the health of everyone in our community and beyond,” said Laguna Beach Mayor Bob Whalen.
The situation is fluid and information provided in this statement is subject to change.
