It's mostly a show vote with little meaning. They admit they can't reopen until the state government says so. Other counties have done the same thing, letting their local orders expire and are waiting for the state to give the go ahead.

... and while we are on this topic, the state should crack down hard on Newport Beach for opening the beach in violation of state health orders, especially since the LA area is a COVID hotspot and last weekend's crowds show that Newport can't control it.

In the military one saying that we had was.

STAND BY TO STAND BY....

We are going to wait until we receive official word from viable authority and hopefully the re opening will have some controls inserted for a gradual and safe situation.

Same procedure for us continues, we are still working out at home, not hanging with large groups , or even friends, hike the trails that are open, and wearing masks and gloves when going to the markets, drug store and hardware store. We also maintain our social distance when out of the house.


Some additional good news is that the Brits seem to have a jump on a vaccine, but I think the end product is still going to be a while due to required further testing. At least a bit of a positive bright light of hope .

Also thanks for heads up on the politicals waiting for the state to make a decision. I thought the gov said something about
letting the local govt decide when to re-open after the state makes a decision.

The Orange County Register discussed this issue this morning. The consensus was that although the area looked crowded, especially in photos taken at ground level, photos taken from above showed that people were mostly practicing adequate social distancing. Police and lifeguards who were there corroborated this, and the conclusion was that there was no need to close the beach.

Whether the state will "allow" it to remain open or not, I don't know. Clearly there are at least 40,000 people in Orange County (probably a few came from LA County) who are not following stay-home orders; on the other hand, people are encouraged to go out and get fresh air and exercise, so...?

I also just heard that Laguna Beach will reopen some beaches on some weekday mornings (not sure of details).

Well, as of now we have our answer: Gov. Newsom just announced a statewide closure order for all beaches everywhere.

I'm all for a gradual loosening of restrictions when the numbers start to go down. That's the problem, California's numbers are going up, not down, especially in SoCal.

He'd better prepare for mass civil disobedience as tens of thousands of formerly law-abiding citizens suddenly become criminals.

The Orange County chapter of E Clampus Vitus should blockade all the bridges and roads between OC and LA County and Riverside County since those are the two biggest coronavirus epicenters.

Credo Quia Absurdum forever.

Crack down....jc.....there has been enough cracking down. We aren’t communist Russia. You weren’t there. I was. I had to go down to my rentals. There was NO large party. People were respectful of the distancing and lots of people had PPE. Instead now they are protesting wearing no PPE and are a lot closer than they were at the beaches.

Please let’s stop with the cracking down. What exactly are they gonna do? Write a ticket? I would tell Newsom to pound sand on that.

Lol. There aren’t enough emergency personnel and K rails to block off all the streets between LA OC and Riverside.
