Governor Gavin Newsom announced this week that some businesses and parks are allowed to open this weekend, per “Stage 2” of his five-stage plan that will slowly open up the state’s current shelter-in-place ordinance.

But many might be wondering exactly what does this mean. Can Mom and I go out for lunch at the golf course restaurant after a round? Can my family take a picnic to the hiking trails and picnic tables for Sunday brunch? Here is a press release from Los Angeles Parks and Recreation to help you how you’d like to celebrate Mother’s Day or just to enjoy being in nature, on the course, or anywhere but home again: https://parks.lacounty.gov/covid-19/.

Happy Mother’s Day and stay safe!
