LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County has reopened its beaches in the latest easing of coronavirus restrictions that have closed most California public spaces and businesses for nearly two months.
County beaches and many city-owned beaches along the 75 miles of coastline reopened Wednesday but with social distancing rules.
The move comes as California tentatively eases some stay-at-home restrictions. Gov. Gavin Newsom last week permitted many retail businesses to reopen under restrictions.
On Tuesday, he said some business offices can reopen. Meanwhile, seven rural Northern California counties have received state permission to reopen their economies more quickly.
