From Pacifica Riptide:

From Greg Cochran of Pedro Point Surf Club: "I just got off the phone with Supervisor Jerry Hill (San Mateo County Board of Supervisors). He so graciously called the San Mateo County Director of Environmental Health at home and got this word from the Director, Dean Peterson.  They (County, City, Feds) are going to do one more walkthrough on our beaches at 8AM tomorrow morning (Friday, November 16th). At that time, if all goes well and there is no evidence of oil, the County will issue a Press Release, opening the beaches by 10AM."

There’s more information about cleanup efforts, etc. in the linked article.
