Los Angeles County has decided to reopen its beaches to the public starting Wednesday, May 13. The decision comes after more than a month of beach closures in light of the coronavirus pandemic. The L.A. County beaches closed on May 27 amid growing concerns of COVID-19 cases in the area. It joins other Southern California regions like San Diego and Orange County in the reopening of beaches.

Activities like surfing, swimming, running, and walking has been allowed. It would be mandatory for visitors to wear facemasks while they are on the sand. However, sunbathing and any other activities that require mass gathering on the sand have been restricted. Parking lots, piers, boardwalks and bike paths will also remain closed as of now. The cities in L.A Country with its own beaches would be allowed to hold a decision to comply with the county-wide measures at will.

Richard Montgomery, Beach Mayor, Manhattan said in a press statement that the authorities are urging all visitors to abide by the Public Health Orders for the safety of their neighbors and themselves. He also requested residents for responsible use of the beach by maintaining social and physical distancing measures. He informed that beaches will only be open for active uses such as walking, running, surfing, and swimming.

He further mentioned that by following the rules of the authorities, people will have the chance to play an important role in keeping the beaches open. The State of California or Los Angeles County is eligible to close down all beaches in the regions once again if authorities witness individuals failing to follow the rules.
