Updated Parking Along Pacific Coast Highway as a Result of COVID-19

In order to continue the success of Ventura County flattening the COVID-19 curve, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, working in collaboration with the California Highway Patrol, Caltrans, California State Parks, and Ventura County Parks Department, will be updating parking standards along northern and southern stretches of the Pacific Coast Highway in Ventura County.

The Pacific Coast Highway from Point Mugu State Beach south to the Los Angeles County line will be closed for all parking. Additionally, the Pacific Coast Highway from Emma Wood State Beach north to the Santa Barbara County line will be closed for all parking. This change in parking regulations is a continued effort to comply with the “Stay at Home Order” issued by the Ventura County Health Officer, which was most recently updated on April 20, 2020. Areas will be clearly marked, and enforcement action related to parking and/or violations of the “Stay at Home Order” may be taken.

Beginning today, April 30, 2020 at 8:00 am, Caltrans posted “No Parking” signs along both sides of Pacific Coast Highway as well as coning off the area. Law enforcement agencies will be patrolling the area to ensure compliance with the new parking restrictions, beach closures and the “Stay at Home Order.”

These agencies are committed to keeping the residents of Ventura County safe, and at this time, that includes restricting access to parking in certain areas. The goal of this temporary parking

restriction is to keep the curve flattened related to new cases of COVID-19 within the County.

All beaches south of Naval Base Ventura County at Point Mugu extending to the Los Angeles County line are completely closed. All beaches north of Point Mugu to the Santa Barbara County line are open with some restrictions. Beach goers will only be allowed to participate in activities on the beach such as running, walking, swimming, and surfing. Gathering on the beach in groups with items such as blankets, chairs, and coolers will not be allowed.

Come on people is the beach really that D#%€ important. Hey hears a thought, stay home spend some more time with your spouse, your kids, hell even your dog. Mow the yard,plant a garden. Nobody really cares what you do just keep A## off the beach for a few more days.
IF YOU CAN’T DO IT FOR YOURSELF THAN DO IT FOR SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT(if there is any)

I need to get my body in the ocean. How is one supposed to do that if you cannot park a car?

So, the beaches are “open”, but you just can’t park, s—, sit or sunbathe.
