Gov. Gavin Newsom took time to address what outdoor activities are permitted with the stay at home order in place. 

"We want you to enjoy outdoor activities, we just don't want you to linger," said Newsom in his latest press conference. 

We're currently in the first stage of reopening the state, but there are still outdoor activities that people can participate in. 

Newsom took time to clarify what activities are permitted after large crowds were drawn to Southern California beaches last weekend. Activities including hiking, skateboarding, cycling and many more are still permitted.
