Mimi Johnson started this petition to Governor of California. Gavin Newsome.

Reopen the beaches in Orange County.  There has been NO medical evidence that the coronavirus can transmit on the beaches.  Only healthy and fit people go to beaches, the sick would not have the energy to go. There has not been any evidence that the virus can spread on the beaches, so there is no perceived benefit to closing them. Yet the community suffers the harm of having a very important open outdoor recreation taken away.

There are so many health benefits for walking on the beach, being on the beach.  The fresh open air, the ions in the water would help strengthen  people's immune system to fight a potential future coronavirus infection, which are important in this pandemic. The beach also help people calm down and relax during this extremely stressful time. I had been walking the beach 5 times a week for the last 10 years of my life to rehab my knee on the soft sand and also keep my mental sanity.  I know there are a lot of local residents using the beach for various health reasons.   For me and those people, we have been stripped  of a very important physical and mental rehab venue.

Please help us send the governor the message that we really need our beaches because they are important natural venues for self rehab, both physical and mental.  There is no evidence that the virus can propagate on the beaches.  Please get them open again. Thank you.
