City Facility and Event Programming Changes
Until the End of April Due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID Event and Facility Closure

Manhattan Beach, CA (March 13, 2020) – In response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the City of Manhattan Beach has closed the Joslyn Community Center and cancelled all Older Adult Programming until the end of April 2020. This action is taken out of an abundance of caution, and to protect the health and safety of the public, and older adults in particular that are vulnerable to COVID-19.  In addition, following Governor Gavin Newsom’s recommendations to slow the spread of COVID-19, the City has postponed or cancelled special events with large public gatherings until the end of April 2020.

The Dial-A-Ride program will continue to operate, for riders who require medication, doctor visits, and necessary medical care. Dial-A-Ride vehicles are regularly sanitized and cleaned throughout the day.

For more information, please read the entire City Facility and Event Programming Changes Press Release (PDF) and for accurate and up to date information, please visit DPH’s website and the City’s website.


The service can be used for medical appointments, grocery shopping, recreational and social activities and personal business within the City limits.

Dial-A-Ride (DAR) RiderRides are also available to medical and other designated sites in Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and Torrance. Rides are $0.25 inside and $0.50 outside the City limits each way.
