COVID-19 Local Update - in Brief
April 24, 2020
Know what makes this beach photo even more beautiful? It's empty. ⁣
While everyone is anxious to visit our beaches, this is all about preserving lives and reducing the workload for our professional healthcare providers. Our beaches, parks and recreation trails will be available for recreational use when the Stay at Home Order is over. California, and especially Monterey County, has been doing a great job to flatten the curve - we could lose our progress if everyone goes out this weekend. #StayHomeSaveLives
