The SoCal lake where Naya Rivera was found dead after drowning is open to the public again, but her tragedy is having an impact on operations there.
TMZ’s learned Lake Piru reopened Thursday, 43 days after the “Glee” star went out for a day of boating and swimming with her son. The man-made reservoir had been off-limits since Naya went missing. After authorities recovered her body, the lake remained closed as the COVID-19 pandemic intensified in L.A. County.

Now that the public can return there are restrictions. For starters, swimming is absolutely banned. Lake officials say that’s due to COVID-19, but locals tell us they believe the ban is really about Naya’s drowning. When she went missing many locals were critical because there had been 8 previous drownings there since 1994.
