Los Angeles police have closed the Venice Fishing Pier to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
On Wednesday morning, Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) officers closed the Venice Beach Pier.
A spokesperson for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said the pier was most likely closed under rules prohibiting large gatherings in public places. Yo! Venice is still waiting for the spokesperson to confirm this.
As of March 25, Public Health has identified 1,216 cases of COVID-19 across LA County, including 21 deaths and 253 hospitalizations.
Nine of these confirmed cases are in Venice. .
