CA - Trails and Beaches Reopen With Restrictions in Place

Beachgoers will now be permitted to walk, run, swim and surf in LA County—biking, sunbathing and sports such as volleyball are still restricted.

Los Angeles County officials announced beaches would open for recreational uses—walking, running, swimming and surfing—on Wednesday, May 13, five days after hiking trails reopened countywide.

The beach reopening follows six weeks of closures to enforce social distancing and comes three weeks after a similar reopening was attempted—with success—in Ventura County.
