Newport Beach from this Past Weekend is Just Wow

Newport Beach

A weekend heatwave that saw temperatures around 90F (32C), which took tens of thousands to Orange County’s Newport Beach, sparking spirited conversation about the difficulties of enjoying the weather and outdoors while keeping social distancing rules.

Local governments have tried to quell the crowds at their own beaches with a mixture of solutions including closing nearby parking lots, only allowing access for active use, closing on weekends, shutting down main access roads during peak times, and expanding police presence to help make sure social distancing rules will be followed.

As summer weather continues to creep in, the challenge of enjoying the outdoors while keeping social distancing rules will become a crucial battleground for slowing the curve of the virus.
