The city of Huntington Beach reopened the Huntington Beach Pier on Tuesday for the first time since late March.

Businesses along the pier have also opened and fishing is being allowed, city spokesman Eric McCoy said.

“We’re asking people to keep moving and to be mindful of social distancing,” McCoy said.

Huntington Beach has moved into full implementation of Phase 2 of reopening, which allows in-person dining and retail shopping with face masks and social distancing. The city has established a website, HB Reopen, to aid local businesses with reopening.

The pier was originally closed March 24 to promote social distancing.
