County of San Diego and City of Chula Vista extending the Stay at Home mandate through April and indefinitely. City continues to promote Stay at Home, Parks Closed, and Social Distancing.
City staff are working to educate and inform residents about Closed Parks and Trails. CVPD reports that there were crowds of people in some parks throughout city and at trailheads in the east this weekend. Closed Parks signs have been installed in some parks and additional signs are being fabricated along with Closed Trails signs to be installed this week. The goal is to use signage, website and social media to educate but it may become necessary for CVPD to help educate and potentially enforce.
All April events within the City of Chula Vista, including South Bay Earth Day, Hops & Hops 5K, and Day of the Child have either been postponed to a later date or cancelled. City staff will inform event planners if this directive extends into May.
