SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Less than a week after we witnessed crowds packing California beaches, Governor Gavin Newsom looks to be gearing up to close all beaches and state parks.
Many beaches were opened last weekend, drawing huge crowds.
Gov. Newsom's possible decision on closing beaches and state parks cames from a memo obtained by CBS News from the California Police Chief's Association, intended to give police departments more time to prepare. Read More
The memo says the governor will make the announcement at his noon press conference on Thursday, April 30, 2020. Click Here to watch live.
