Keep California Beaches Open

The importance of physical exertion for physical and psychological well-being is a well established fact. Right now the world is in the middle of an unprecedented crisis for our times. Now more than ever people need the freedom to access the resources that allow them to move and breathe within the appropriate parameters that have been put in place. If our beaches could open or remain open, it would provide more space in which to do this. 

The Centers For Disease Control (COVID-19) Fact Sheet states, "There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools, hot tubs or spas, or water playgrounds." In California, we pay a lot of money to live close to a huge natural water playground. If our local beaches remain open, there is plenty of room for the local surfers to surf safely and appropriately distanced. 

If people are not comfortable with being at the beach, it is still absolutely okay to continue to stay home and quarantine yourself. That is absolutely our right to choose. Please don't take away our freedom to choose if we want to enjoy our public beaches or not. 

In conclusion, we are asking that you please keep our California beaches open for the physical and mental well-being of ALL our communities.
