Los Angeles County has decided to shut its beaches along with banning their fireworks display during the holiday weekends after the officials of California alerted that additional restrictions may be necessary to decline the spike in COVID positive cases.

On Monday, the Director of Public Health in Los Angeles, Barbara Ferrer said that the larger gatherings are “a recipe for increased transmission of COVID-19.”

Los Angeles is a county of over 10-million population witnessed the surge of 2,903 new positive cases in a single day adding up the tally to 100,000 total cases.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said that Californian residents are experiencing a concerning increase in the COVID positive cases, and therefore he promised to look after the health order and if necessary he will enforce the lockdown again.

The new order came into action the very next day after the Governor ordered the bars to shut down in Los Angeles.

On Monday, Sacramento, San Diego, and Riverside took the initiative to voluntarily close the bars. Apart from these counties, Contra Costa County as well as the San Francisco Bay area also postponed its Wednesday plan of reopening the restaurants and bars.

San Diego’s second most famous county in California took action, even it is off the list of coronavirus trends.

The Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said, “We don’t want to wait to be forced to take any action when we know that it is the wise and responsible thing for us to do now.”

Fletcher went into isolation after he came into contact with someone who caught the infection.

During mid-March, the first state to issue a compulsory stay-at-home order was California. The Governor gradually started giving relaxations in May, which rapidly increased in June.

Los Angeles’s public beaches, bike paths, and parking areas are set to remain closed from Friday midnight till Monday at 5:00 a.m. A ban has been put up on the weekend’s fireworks display to avoid mass gathering.

Bars had received a green signal to reopen by June 12, a week later when Newsom had imposed the order of the masks throughout the state.

Several viral images and videos on social media depicted that the patrons of these businesses have failed to follow the guidelines of reopening such as wearing masks and maintaining social distance.
