California’s State-wide, Stay-At-Home closure policies—including but not limited to all metered parking spots at local beaches and recreational areas
Orange County Health Officer’s Order, which temporarily bans all public gatherings, with specifically noted exceptions (Emergency Regulations, dated March 17, 2020);
CDC safety guidelines and precautions;
Closure of all County parks, beaches, and recreational facilities.
