Has the COVID-19 Pandemic Affected Cardiff-by-the-Sea?


The COVID-19 pandemic has taken by storm the entire world, with millions of people getting infected worldwide and over 3 million only in the U.S. Ever since the beginning, health officials have warned about the rapid rate at which the virus spreads and the risks associated with it, as well as what measures need to be taken in order to slow down the spread of the virus and keep the health system from getting overwhelmed. Although these efforts have been very helpful and it's extremely important to continue being precautious, life as we knew it seems to have changed completely. During this period, we perhaps how we took for granted all those small things that bring us joy and how precious are those moment when you can enjoy time with your friends or family, take a vacation to a beautiful place, or even just a walk in the park or on the beach.

With the travel restrictions, it's clear that a lot of vacation plans have been postponed, but hopefully, we'll all be able to return to normal soon and resume all of our plans. While there are still many restrictions and rules in place, things seem to look up in Encinitas and Cardiff-by-the-Sea, as the curve of infections seems to move a lot slower than in the rest of the country. Health officials have declared that SoCal's number of cases doubles every 23 days with the total number of cases being lower than in other states. This is extremely good news, not only for SoCal's residents but also for beachgoers, surfers, and everyone else who wants to relax for a while in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, as the state officials are slowly starting to loosen restrictions and beaches and businesses are opening up.
