    Newsom Orders Closure of Orange County Beaches


    NEWPORT BEACH (CNS)—Despite indications he might close the coastline statewide, Gov. Gavin Newsom on April 30 instead ordered a temporary “hard close” only of beaches in Orange County, where crowds gathered on the sand during last weekend’s heat wave amid social-distancing mandates due to the CCP virus.

    “We’re guided by health. We’re guided by your health and the health of others,” Newsom said in announcing the closure.

    On April 27, Newsom lamented images of crowds that gathered on some beaches in Orange County—particularly in Newport Beach—on the weekend of April 25-26, saying such masses of people are a feeding ground for COVID-19 and could reverse the progress the state has made in “flattening the curve” of the illness.

    He repeated those concerns on April 30, but said the “vast majority” of the state did not have issues with large crowds gathering.

    “But in areas where we didn’t see that, you have to acknowledge that, you have to own that. And you have to figure that out,” Newsom said…

    But on April 28, the Newport Beach City Council rejected a proposal to shutter the beaches for the next three weekends. Laguna Beach officials, meanwhile, voted to allow active use of the beaches from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. weekdays, beginning May 4.
