Port of San Diego Closes Parks, Beaches, and Boat Launches Around San Diego Bay
March 24, 2020
Prioritizing public health and well-being, and to help minimize the spread of and exposure to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the Port of San Diego is closing public parks around San Diego Bay, which includes beaches, parking lots, piers, and boat launches. The decision is effective immediately, is consistent with the County of San Diego’s amended public health order, and follows similar moves by the State of California and local city governments to further discourage non-essential gatherings of any size.
Closed signs are being posted at Port parks, parking lots, beaches and boat launches, and Port of San Diego Harbor Police will be working to educate the public about the closures and what is and isn’t allowed. Public access walkways, sidewalks, and promenades are open to allow exercise – walking, running, and cycling – which is permitted under the State of California’s stay at home order, so long as a socially safe distance of six feet is maintained from people who aren’t part of the same household.

Prioritizing public health, and with extra precautions in place to minimize community spread of and exposure to Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), the Port of San Diego is working with its cruise line partners to conclude sailings that were underway when the cruise lines suspended operations last week. No ship has or will be allowed in San Diego Bay without first being cleared by medical authorities, and no new sailings have begun or will begin out of San Diego Bay until at least mid-April.
Since last week, when cruise lines announced they were suspending sailings for at least 30 days in response to the current global health crisis, three ships have come into port and disembarked all passengers along with crew members whose contracts have ended. One more cruise vessel is scheduled to arrive next week. Some of the ships will remain in San Diego Bay without passengers aboard. Per the cruise lines, crew members still under contract must remain on the ship.
