The LA County Health Department ordered all county beaches, beach bike paths, trails, and beach access points until April 19th. The strict safety precautions were necessary after visitors flocked to area beaches and trails last weekend. Photos of crowds flocking to coastal destinations went viral on social media.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be hiring extra personnel to enforce the closures along with L.A. County Lifeguard, Department of Beaches and Harbor Code Enforcement staff.
Per Lost Hills Station Acting Captain Chuck Becerra, hard enforcement on all parking closures along PCH, and on all beach and trail closures begins tomorrow.
Earlier today, City of Malibu Public Works began setting up NO PARKING signs along PCH. Lost Hills Station personnel will be going through the area systematically starting door knocking and providing resource information to RV owners. Those non-compliant will be cited and towed.
A list of enforcement areas on PCH is listed here.
