04/29/2020: City Manager Orders Partial Beach Closure and Restrictions to Essential Activity Only, to Reduce the Spread of COVID-19 - Effective Fri., May 1

City Manager Hans Uslar today announced a partial beach closure for Monterey beaches that will take effect on Friday, May 1, 2020. This temporary measure provides additional health and safety assurance during the COVID-19 pandemic emergency shelter in place order. As both the State Stay at Home and the Monterey County Shelter-in-Place orders require, social distancing of six feet between people remains a critical component to reduce the risk of spreading the coronavirus. The warmer weather and the desire for people to return to normal activities after weeks of sheltering in place threaten to dismantle the progress made in combating COVID-19, prompting the additional restrictions.
