The Santa Cruz County health officer is planning to reopen beaches, parks, and to lift the ban on surfing this Thursday, April 16.
“We’re seeing a very flattened curve in Santa Cruz County, which makes me feel optimistic and I believe that our community members will appreciate the privilege of being able to utilize the beaches and parks in our community,” County Health Officer Dr. Gail Newel said.
Park equipment and parking areas along West Cliff Drive will remain closed while the parking lots at Moran Lake Beach and The Hook will be open for limited parking in Santa Cruz County, KSBW8 reports.
