.Santa Cruz in Photos: Crowds Return to Municipal Wharf

With summer here, large crowds are more frequent at Santa Cruz hot spots like the Santa Cruz Municipal Wharf, despite social distancing rules.

On Thursday, California Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a statewide order to wear masks in common and public indoor spaces. The rule includes wearing masks outdoors when physical distancing is not possible, such as in line to enter a store or when riding with Lyft, Uber or public transportation.

Masks are not required while dining at a restaurant or with outdoor recreation, like walking, bicycling or running, if you can keep six feet from others.
