On Friday, May 8, Los Angeles enters Stage II of the coronavirus crisis response, allowing some retail establishments to offer curbside pick-up only. In addition, trails, trailhead parks and golf courses (including Elysian Park trails) will reopen Saturday, May 9.
Even as parks reopen, visitors will need to adhere to social distancing and wear face coverings while in public. These necessary safety precautions prevent a surge of infections as we return to public spaces. According to the Safer LA website, “Everyone should continue to limit travel and non-essential activities and stay home as much as possible.”
This staged approached allows for fewer restrictions over a long period of time. Key milestones much be reached before the City moves to the next stage.
