Venice Beach Parking Lots Now Closed

We all knew it was going to happen, the city closed all the beach parking lots this afternoon.

It was announced on Sunday:

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said during his lived-streamed remote news conference on Sunday that in consultation with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the city is closing beach parking lots and all organized group sports, saying that the six-feet rule is in place to save lives.

He reminded people to keep practicing social distancing, to stand at least six feet away from others. It's a technique, he said, that will not only keep you safe but it will protect your love ones and others as well. He also told people not to take risks with their health.

LA Beaches & Harbors made this statement:

The beaches constitute miles of unfenced, open space along LA County’s coast. We closed the parking lots & volleyball courts to discourage large groups of people from congregating on beaches at this time.
