After protests and lawsuits, California Governor Gavin Newsom announced today that Huntington Beach, Dana Point and Seal Beach are set to reopen.
The governor had ordered the closure of all Orange County beaches on Friday. That sparked lawsuits from Huntington Beach and Dana Point. Protests also broke out in Huntington.
On Monday, beaches in San Clemente and Laguna Beach were allowed to reopen after those locales reached agreements with state officials on “protocols and procedures” to open up safely.
