Earlier this week, the City Council met and voted 3-2 to leave the beaches open M-F, but close them on the weekends.
Coronado’s Mayor Richard Bailey shared this on social media:
Coronado Beaches are closed for the duration of the public health emergency effective tonight at midnight.
The orders from the state of California and County of San Diego recognize the importance of maintaining physical and mental health. These orders allow all residents to walk, run, and enjoy fresh air while following social distancing guidelines.
For nearly the past two weeks the Coronado beach has been shutdown to all activities with the exception of walking, running, and exercising.
Although the vast majority of residents were adhering to social distancing guidelines, in anticipation of further activity restrictions by the state of California and County of San Diego, and in an effort to reduce potential exposure to our public safety personnel as well as the community at large, the Coronado beaches will be closed tonight at midnight.
As long as we share in the responsibility to treat one another with kindness and respect, which have been hallmarks of our community, we can get through this difficult time together.
One day at a time, Coronado
The City of Coronado shared this information:
Coronado’s beach will be closed due to the coronavirus spread effective at midnight tonight, April 3. Staff will post the beach access points with closure signs. The public may not enter the public beach until further notice.
Though many residents were complying with social distancing, the City wants to discourage people from coming to Coronado, creating greater opportunities for the spread of the coronavirus.
