Bioluminescence has made its way to Orange County shores for the first time in three years and today residents can see it just in time as OC beaches reopen under state approval. The phenomenon made its way onto Orange County shores in the last week of April and has been attracting residents to beaches after sunset. Supervisor Lisa Bartlett made a Facebook post earlier today saying Orange County received approval from the state to open county beaches for recreational activities.

The United States President declared a national state of emergency Friday, March 13 in response to the covid-19 pandemic. Coupled with the Stafford act and a national public health emergency, the United States government is trying to contain and slow the spread of covid-19. The last enactment of a national state of emergency for public health was under Obama in October 2009 for the H1N1 Influenza Pandemic.
