San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer joined "The Daily Briefing" Monday to discuss the decision to reopen beaches in San Diego County over the weekend as local governments in California begin taking tentative steps to reopen amid to the coronavirus pandemic.
"I got all the mayors to buy into it [as well as] our county public health officials," said Faulconer, a Republican. "It was a phased plan, and we said 'Let's give San Diegans the chance to do the right thing.' They did [that] this weekend. It was great to see. You had families out there. [We said] you can swim, you can surf. You can't sit down on the beach, but you can move around, walk, jog.
