The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is ordering L.A. County beaches closed from July 3 through July 6 at 5 a.m. to prevent crowding that results in the spread of deadly COVID-19.
For that same reason, the department is also prohibiting fireworks displays in the County this July 4th holiday weekend.
During the holiday weekend, beaches will be totally closed to all recreational activities. Beach parking lots will be closed, as well.
All public beaches, piers, public beach parking lots, beach bike paths that traverse that sanded portion of the beach, and beach access points will be temporarily closed to the public as of 12:01 a.m. on July 3, 2020, until 5 a.m. on July 6, 2020.
Long Beach has its own health department and this announcement does not apply to that city, at this time.
