Fourth of July planning during COVID-19
How does the City of Del Mar plan for its busiest holiday during a global pandemic?
With plenty of staffing, sanitizing and reminders to follow public health orders. Signage and markings near restrooms, showers and beach access points will reinforce those points.
The three-day, Fourth of July weekend has lifeguards, parking enforcement officers and beach maintenance technicians scheduled to start early and work late.
Portable restrooms are on order for Powerhouse Park and five locations near the beach. All of them are scheduled to receive multiple cleanings and disinfection treatments.
Tow-away zones are planned along segments of Stratford Court and Ocean Avenue. A temporary loading zone is planned at 20th Street.
As the Department of Community Services works to keep visitors safe, visitors are asked above all else to be courteous and respectful of each other.
