Fourth of July revelers in Los Angeles County have been advised to stay away from beaches as coronavirus cases continue to skyrocket in Southern California. What about staying away from San Diego? Well, that’s another story.
In L.A. County, the temporary closures affects all beaches, piers, parking lots, beach bike paths, and beach access points beginning on Friday, July 3rd at 12:01 a.m., and lasting through 5 a.m. on Monday, July 6th.
As a result, many Angelenos are planning trips to America’s Free-ist City (San Diego) for the holiday weekend where beaches haven’t been closed. Additionally, as more closures get announced in neighboring Arizona (including water parks,) expect to see even more Zonies in San Diego for the 4th of July weekend.
Tuesday, San Diego county supervisor Nathan Fletcher said it’s up to officials in beach communities to decide whether beaches should be closed this weekend.
Reddit user Wakenbacon had this to say in response: “if you can put up roadblocks on the I8 to AZ, the I15 to Riverside and the I5 to OC, then I’m OK with keeping them open.”
