Knowledge and responses to the pandemic are changing constantly. We will try and provide you the most up-to-date information here.

Riverside County’s health order expired on April 30. Beginning May 1, the county fell solely under the governor’s executive stay-at-home order. The governor’s order states that all California residents must stay home unless they are engaged in an essential business or activity, such as grocery shopping or visiting the doctor. The newly amended county health order continues to allow for certain recreational activities, including use of trails and parks for hiking, biking, and equestrian uses. Golf is also permitted with certain limitations. The order continues to require face coverings and six-foot physical distancing. This county mandate is currently in place until June 19, 2020.
Guidelines for wearing face coverings, as amended May 1, 2020, follow.
Face coverings must be worn in public settings, such as:
• waiting in line to go inside a store,
• shopping at a store,
• picking up food at a restaurant,
• on public transportation (or waiting for it),
• in a taxi or ride share vehicle,
• when seeking healthcare,
• when going inside facilities allowed to stay open,
• working an essential job that interacts with the public, and
• children two years and older should be encouraged to wear a mask around others closer than six feet, and when they do, they just be supervised by an adult.
Face coverings are not required to be worn by people who are:
• at home,
• in the car alone or with members of their own household,
• children under the age of two years old (due to the risk of suffocation), and
• outdoors when hiking, walking, bicycling, or running. However, people must comply with physical distancing during these activities, including maintaining at least six feet of distance from other people. Residents should also have a face-covering readily accessible.
If you must visit an essential business, please know that businesses have been instructed to follow the guidelines which include physical distancing of six feet and all employees must wear masks. Businesses must also inform customers that wearing face coverings is required, can take steps to keep people who are not wearing a mask from entering the business, and can refuse service to anyone not wearing a face covering.
