Despite continued stay-at-home orders, thousands of Southern Californians flocked to beaches this weekend, as the thermostat climbed north of ninety degrees. 

While L.A. and San Diego County beaches were closed, Ventura and Orange Counties were still open for visitors, which did follow certain public health guidelines. 

Meanwhile, we’ve heard anecdotally that some are loosening the shelter-in-place restrictions on their own lives. As the quarantine wears on and the numbers in California remain fairly flat, some are starting to see friends or family. 

Are the continued shelter-in-place guidelines taking a toll on your patience and are you starting to change your behavior? And looking at it from the policy perspective, what are the trade-offs between continued harsh shelter-in-place measures and people’s waning compliance? Call us at 866-893-5722.
