As the State of California scrambles to combat the outbreak of COVID-19, Los Angeles officials continue to expand upon the local shelter in place order.

On Sunday, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced the closure of City-owned parks and beach parking lots.

"This weekend we saw too many people packing beaches, trails and parks," reads a Tweet from Garcetti. "That doesn’t mean gather elsewhere. This is serious. Stay home and save lives."

Additionally, the Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority has announced the closure of all of its parks, trails, and buildings in response to the outbreak.

Closer to the street grid, transit passengers using Metro and LADOT buses are asked to enter and exit through the rear door only starting Monday.

Metro bus drivers are also required to use a transparent protective barrier to isolate them from passengers.

These moves come as the outbreak of Coronavirus has caused a precipitous decline in transit ridership Countywide, accompanied by service reductions to account for the reduced demand.
