COVID-19 in San Diego: Cases & Deaths (Updated Daily)

COVID-19 Update – Tuesday, April 28, 2020

The City has recently reopened the beach to walking and running, and ocean and bay waters also have been opened to recreational sports such as surfing, swimming and kayaking.

City Lifeguards and Police, however, took note of a large number of people on the beach after the beach closed the very first day it reopened. The City implemented its reduction of beach and water restrictions on Monday, April 27, part of a coordinated multi-phased reopening plan.

The Police Department did not receive any complaints about crowds or gathering concerns Monday. However, Police Officers issued 357 verbal warnings to beachgoers from 6 p.m. to midnight that evening for not obeying the closure hours.

Many were there to see the sunset or to watch the red tide. However, people may not loiter, sit or lay on the beach or gather in groups of any size anywhere. These activities could be lifted in Phase 2, which is the City’s goal.

Please help Coronado reach Phase 2 by maintaining the required social distancing and sanitation, following Phase 1 rules and leaving the beach by 6 p.m.

When the Lifeguards ask crowds to leave the beach as they prepare to end their shifts, the City asks that people disperse for the night. The City plans to add signage to the beach to emphasize the hours, and barriers or caution tape will be placed at beach entrances to discourage after-hours activities. Police will step up enforcement efforts in the evenings until the City sees compliance.

Although people may now enter the ocean and bay for recreational water sports, they should reside within walking distance to the ocean or bay.

Social distancing and sanitation measures must be maintained. Anyone displaying any symptoms of being sick is not allowed on any public beach or park.

Beginning May 1, face coverings will be required whenever you are within 6 feet of another person. Until then, it is recommended you use face coverings to the extent possible.
