Beaches up and down the Southern California coast are also closing down for the holiday weekend amid a spike in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations.
Normally around this time of year, people are flocking to beaches. But this year, nearly all beaches across Los Angeles and Orange counties -- as well as beaches in Ventura County -- will be closed to the public for the holiday weekend.
