• To mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and prevent large gatherings over the Fourth of July holiday weekend, Los Angeles County officials announced Monday (June 29) that LA County beaches, beach parking lots, beach bike paths and beach accessways will be closed from 12:01 a.m. Friday (July 3) to 5 a.m. Monday (July 6).
• “Due to rising #COVID19 cases all @CountyofLA beaches will be closing again temporarily this weekend, July 3rd through 6th,” county Supervisor Janice Hahn, who represents Marina del Rey, tweeted on June 29. “We had almost 3,000 reported cases just today. We cannot risk having crowds at the beach this holiday weekend.”
