Coronado to Close Beach During Public Health Crisis
CORONADO, Calif. (April 3, 2020) – Coronado’s beach will be closed due to the coronavirus spread effective at midnight.
Staff will post the beach access points with closure signs. The public may not enter the public beach until further notice.
At a special meeting on Tuesday, March 31, the City Council ordered the beach closed on weekends. At the meeting, the Council also closed the dog washing station at Dog Beach, playground equipment at all parks, the bandstand at Spreckels Park and the tennis courts. On Thursday, the City also closed Sunset Park due to people congregating there when the weekday beach closure went into effect.
Though many residents were complying with social distancing, the City wants to discourage people from coming to Coronado, creating greater opportunities for the spread of the coronavirus.

City Council Closes Beach on Weekends, Limits Park Access
CORONADO, Calif. (March 31, 2020) – At a special meeting Tuesday, March 31, the City Council ordered the closure of its beach, including Dog Beach, on weekends and street parking on the west side of Ocean Boulevard every day to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.
Council members also placed off-limits the dog washing station at Dog Beach at all times and asked staff to place hand sanitizer stations at beach access points during the week.
The Council also closed the playground equipment at all parks, the bandstand at Spreckels Park, and its tennis courts seven days a week. Parks will remain open. The Council agreed to close the Glorietta Bay Boat Launch Ramp when the Harbor Police limit recreational access to San Diego Bay.
The no-parking on Ocean Boulevard will extend around Sunset Park seven days a week.
The City Council will place an item on the April 7 agenda to evaluate the closures.
The City will continue to monitor the beach and Coronado Police and Lifeguards will work to ensure visitors are complying with the state’s public health order that enforces social distancing.
Coronado’s Neighbor-to-Neighbor (N-2-N) is a program built on neighbors looking out for and helping one another. With multiple help-your-neighbor efforts springing up around Coronado immediately after the declaration of a national emergency, a group of citizens approached the City to propose a unified and coordinated effort to provide support to our citizens and neighbors. Through this partnership, local volunteers, your neighbors, with the support of the City of Coronado, are undertaking initiatives to get the word out to all our citizens; helping deliver food, medications, and other needs to people needing assistance; providing critical transportation for those in need; and coordinating donations to assist those suffering severe financial hardship during these times.
Programs are being organized by volunteers in the Coronado Cays, Coronado Shores, Coronado Village and Navy Housing. Coronado’s N-2-N initiative will enable residents to be better informed and able to take advantage of local efforts and resources. Launching in the next few days, be on the look-out for a neighbor to deliver a letter with program details. This program is entirely voluntary. It establishes a practical, enduring system of communication between neighbors and a simple system to ensure neighbors are OK. It is a conduit for establishing effective communications and neighborly “check-ins” as well as serving as liaisons to make the city aware of needs or trends that may arise in their neighborhoods.
In the days to come, look for a neighbor to reach out to you about this program. Again, the program is entirely voluntary and run by volunteers but during these uncertain times it is important that we maintain our sense of community. If you do not receive information regarding this program and want to participate please contact the Neighbor-to-Neighbor (N-2-N) program coordinator at CoronadoN2N@gmail.com or contact the Coronado Call Center at (619) 522-6380.
