As local businesses began to shut their doors, the citizens of Newport Beach, California, found comfort in spending time outside, despite the statewide shelter-in-place order. Some families continue their usual beach walks, Starbucks runs, and bike rides, while others continue to work on their gardens and home renovations. Restaurants have converted to take-out, delivery, or drive-thru options. Businesses with onsite locations remain open with signs that limit the occupancy or tell customers to practice social distancing. Local beaches that are usually crowded when there is sunshine are empty.
