This Is What Beaches In Southern California Looked Liked Last Weekend Despite The Coronavirus

Posted 5 hours ago

Very little social distancing, but lots of selfishness.

Southern California got some warm, summer weather this weekend and despite other counties closing beaches and following social distancing guidlines, folks gathered at Newport Beach and Huntington Beach to soak up the sun. Here, have a look.

1. The rush to the beach began Friday, April 24.

Meanwhile, here’s what Los Angeles beaches were looking like on April 25. Hopefully that restores a tiny bit of the faith that may’ve been lost seeing Orange County risk it all for a few hours of sand and sun.

My compliments to our community for staying away from the beaches in LA. From Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, to Dockweiler – All Clear!! Safer at Home will get us there sooner.
