Our state parks and golf courses were just re-opened. Parking will only be 50% and no rest rooms. Maybe my neighborhood will be less crowded for walking...

DH and I were discussing something similar about how our state could possibly start reopening some businesses (with restrictions.) But then the dumba$$ factor came into play and blew our ideas away

Give many people an inch and they take a mile.

Love that term "dumb a$$ factor ." Yup, there is that in California. I live in a county that is very anti Newsom and some people are refusing mask suggestions as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Newsom makes it mandatory once the second wave of the virus hits. I noticed Costco has a mandatory mask rule now. Sorry about the beach close down Amiga and all those who live near a beach in California.

This makes me so annoyed. What did he think people would do? Set up their blankets 6 feet from each other? I heard you guys are having a heat wave in Ca. Of course everyone will go to the beach if it's opened!

Stupid and unnecessary order
Old 04-30-2020, 05:42 AM

The beaches in southern CA were crowded only because LA county still has their beaches and parks closed, so people from LA drove south.

In the aerial photos I saw, people were social distancing except for family groups. My mother lives in Huntington Beach and walks there everyday. Sheís 84. She says people keep their distance.

We all should be going outside. People arenít catching the virus outdoors. Heat and sunlight are good things.

This order is counter productive. You canít keep millions of people on mandatory house arrest forever. If people could go outside to beaches and parks, they would be more willing to maintain quarantine for a longer period.

At some point, people are going to weigh risks and benefits and decide itís time to go out to beaches, to go back to work. The virus is out there and isnít going to magically disappear in a few weeks. Managing it will be our new normal for a while.

I saw the pictures. It was crowded but the groups were apart. The problem was people walking and in the water. My state is doing 50 percent parking at all parks starting Saturday. The beaches can reopen if they only allow a certain number of people on them. They also need all the beaches open so the few that are open do not get crowded like they did. People are craving some bit of normalcy right now, but it has to be in moderation.

He did not allow beaches to open. It was a local decision that he was against because he knew what would happen. I fear that Newport Beach will continue to defy his order. The council basically said that the local police are not going to enforce closure and whatís he going to do about it. I think we are going to see more unsafe demonstrating with crowds and no masks. Our state is about ready to start opening and I hope this doesnít cause a spike that will prevent it.

Personally I feel there is political motivation behind it.

opening back up in Georgia. We may go get a hair cut and get nails done, along with a massage and tattoo, but yet, our local walking trails are still closed.

I'm not surprised, but what a bummer for those who were following the rules. I've said it before, but I fear this will happen with a lot of things that are opening up. People can see limited freedom as all-out freedom. It's especially hard with warm and gorgeous weather to keep to rules when you're outside trying to enjoy life after being cooped up (to whatever extent you were cooped up).

I'm going to save the "throwing their weight around comment" for the entitled wannbe soldiers strutting around state capitals with guns over their soldiers.

The authorities wait to see what people do without too many restrictions and then move in from there with the intent to save lives.

I find the comments about limited freedom and three days of freedom a bit disturbing as if freedom is a gift from the government.

I heard something I completely agree with the other day. In a liberty society, security is never guaranteed, but in a society without liberty, there is NEVER security. Governmental leaders will never be able to assure the public of security. It's time for people to start deciding individually how much liberty they want. It isn't the government's to give.

I'm unhappy to hear they closed the beaches again, especially if people were following the rules
