SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- California will close state beach parking lots in San Diego County ahead of July Fourth.
In a news release Friday, the state listed San Diego among six other counties where parking will also be closed at state beaches.
Other state park units will remain open, according to the state, but State Park staff will monitor visitation to ensure compliance with public health orders.
"Everyone has the responsibility to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, including in the outdoors," the state said.
In addition, the state says current camping reservations at all state parks will be honored over Fourth of July weekend.
The news comes after the City of Oceanside decided Thursday to close beach parking lots over the weekend in an effort to limit holiday gatherings.
