Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn confirmed all county beaches were to be closed Friday through Monday for the Fourth of July weekend.
This ordinance comes in hopes of slowing the accelerating coronavirus pandemic in Southern California.
Under the modified order from the Health Officer, all beaches, beach parking lots, beach bike paths, beach facilities and beach accessways will be closed from 12:01 a.m. Friday, July 3, until 5 a.m. Monday, July 6.
The Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors manages Marina del Rey harbor and 25 miles of beaches along the Los Angeles County coastline, including world-famous Zuma, Malibu, Surfrider, and Venice beaches. In addition to promoting and maintaining a clean coastline, the Department operates the Dockweiler Youth Center near Playa del Rey and at Burton Chace Park in Marina del Rey to serve the needs of the County's residents and visitors.
Under the order, it is now illegal to trespass at the affected locations and is punishable by law to include, but not limited to, a $1,000 fine, officials said.
