In an effort to protect public health and the safety of visitors, volunteers and staff as the state responds to the continued threat of COVID-19 (coronavirus), California State Parks is postponing the Junior Lifeguard Program registration for summer programs until May and will reevaluate at that time. Participants who have already enrolled will not be dropped. If you have questions please reach out to the specific program for assistance.
The department is monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and is committed to following the state’s efforts to help slow the spread of the pandemic disease.
We also remind everyone to practice social distancing and maintain at least six feet between other visitors and anyone who is coughing and sneezing.
