Crowds approached the shores of Virginia Beach on Saturday, even after the city canceled its display of holiday fireworks to "help keep Virginia Beach safe in the face of a coronavirus pandemic".

Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, saw similar scenes when practitioners opted to celebrate Saturday by the water.

Restaurants also were targeted for a weekend crackdown on coronavirus enforcement in California, where hospitalizations for COVID-19 have jumped 50 per cent over the past two weeks and the state capitol building in Sacramento was temporarily closed for deep cleaning.

In the meantime, in California, exactly where numerous beach locations in the southern portion of the state shut for the holiday getaway weekend, the beach crowds in San Diego were being reminiscent of years earlier. CNN affiliation KSWB reported many who did not maintain social distance or wear masks.

"It definitely looks pretty organized with a lot of people for July 4th", said Marine Safety Lieutenant Rich Stropky.

Crowds gathered in other parts of the country to continue protests that have been going on in the US for more than a month. A witness in Baltimore said at least 300 people gathered before knocking around a Christopher Columbus statue and throwing it into the water. In New York, additional than 1,000 demonstrators marched on Brooklyn Bridge as part of the Unite New York Fourth of July Rally & March, police said. Tables on the White Dwelling South Lawn ended up relatively spaced, with about six chairs per desk.

And while people were trying to beat the July heat, many were gathering in shady parts of the space, not distancing themselves at all.
