Beginning May 1, all county parks, beaches, and parking lots are temporarily closed until further notice. Relaxing on the beach may lead to a $1,000 fine, but walking, jogging, swimming, or surfing on the beach is permitted. Monterey Peninsula Regional Parks are also still open to the public.

The Monterey County Health Officer urges residents to recognize the shelter-in-place policy and practice social distancing.
