The beach offers no risk of spreading disease. People are capable of self-monitoring. I watched a life guard chase two women off the beach who were picnicking on a blanket today. Ridiculous! They were clearly friends of each other and well away from others. Had they been swimming or walking it would have been permissible.
Keepinh active in the sun relieves stress, lowers depression and in recent news helps kill the virus from UV light exposure. It is my right to take my body to the beach and distance myself from people while still adhering to my social responsibilities ie mask and 6ft distance while in enclosed public places. It is others right to stay at home. Both are our basic liberties.
