Public invited to review, comment on proposed new County Charter

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors will consider placing a new County Charter on the November ballot at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, July 14, in the Covington Chambers at the County Government Center in San Bernardino.

If approved by voters, the proposed charter would replace the current charter, which was adopted 107 years ago in 1913.

In July 2019, the Board of Supervisors appointed Chairman Curt Hagman and Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford to a subcommittee to begin working with County staff on a charter reform package.

“Our goal was to develop a set of reforms that would modernize our charter by removing outdated language and incorporating proven good governance practices,” Chairman Curt Hagman said.

If approved by voters, the remodeled charter would:

  • Allow the Board of Supervisors to call for special elections to fill vacancies in County elected offices and to remove the Governor’s authority to make appointments to fill vacant Supervisor offices
  • Require the Board of Supervisors to create a redistricting commission to be involved in the redrawing of the boundaries of supervisorial districts every 10 years
  • Protect campaign finance rules and enforcement of those rules
  • Limit County supervisors to a total of three four-year terms
  • Limit and fix supervisor salaries to 80% of the salary of Superior Court Judges and require public hearings for any effort to change supervisor salaries and benefits
  • Require the Board of Supervisors to publicly review County Health Officer orders
  • Require the Board to periodically and publicly review the County Code and the Charter for outdated or unnecessary provisions
  • Replace gender-specific references to reflect the gender diversity on the Board of Supervisors.
  • Require the Board of Supervisors to adopt rules of order for its meetings

“These reforms — if approved by voters — will bring San Bernardino County’s governance into the 21st century by locking in good governance policies, closing the term limit loophole, allowing special elections to fill vacancies, and creating a redistricting commission,” Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford said.

The proposed Charter, a PowerPoint presentation that will be used during the July 14 Board meeting to summarize the proposed Charter, and information on how to submit comments can be found on the New Charter website.

The 1913 County Charter

The Board will accept in-person comments during the meeting as well. However, seating in the chambers is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions.

There are 14 Charter counties in California. The State’s remaining 44 counties are, by default, General Law counties and are bound to adhere to State laws regarding the number and duties of county elected officials.

Charter counties have a limited degree of “home rule” authority that may provide for the election, compensation, terms, removal, and salary of the governing board as well as the election or appointment (except sheriff, district attorney, and assessor who must be elected), compensation, terms, and removal of all county officers

However, a charter does not give county officials additional authority over local regulations, revenue-raising abilities, budgetary decisions, or intergovernmental relations.

Nail salons, tattoo studios and other personal services OK to open June 19

The State Department of Public Health this afternoon, June 12, issued guidance that will allow nail salons, tattoo studios, and other personal care services to open back up beginning June 19.

The guidance, https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/expanded-personal-services.pdf, covers “expanded personal care services,” which includes personal care that requires touching a client’s face, such as facials, electrolysis, and waxing. The guidance applies to esthetician, skin care, and cosmetology services; electrology; nail salons; body art professionals, tattoo parlors, and piercing shops; and massage therapy in non-healthcare settings. This guidance is intended to support a safe, clean environment for workers and customers.

The State is not yet allowing youth sports outside of day camp settings, indoor playgrounds, live theater, saunas and steam rooms, nightclubs, concert venues, festivals, theme parks, and higher education to reopen.

State authorizes movie theaters to open on Friday, with limitations

Movie theaters can reopen on Friday, June 12, provided they limit attendance for each theater to 25 percent of capacity or 100 patrons, whichever is less. This is according to guidance added Monday by the State Department of Public Health to guidance issued on Friday for family entertainment centers, https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-family-entertainment.pdf.

Movie theaters join campgrounds, RV parks, bars, wineries, fitness facilities, hotels, museums, and zoos in being able to reopen Friday in counties that have met certain thresholds on the number of cases, testing and preparedness, including San Bernardino County. Not included in Friday’s announcement were nail salons, tattoo studios, performance venues, and youth sports, which are not authorized to reopen.

Businesses and activities staying open depends heavily on compliance with public health guidance and safe practices. In addition to limiting gatherings to allow for physical distancing, people should wear face coverings in public and wash their hands frequently. Seniors and others who are vulnerable to illness should be especially cautious. Sharp increases in cases and hospital admissions could prompt the state to reclose businesses and activities. #SBCountyTogether

June 5, 2020 Update

Preparation Guidance Issued for Gyms, Bars, Museums, and Other Businesses and Activities

California will allow schools, camps, bars, gyms and other sectors to begin reopening next Friday, June 12. These are among several new businesses and activities the State Department of Public Health today announced can reopen in those counties that have met certain thresholds on the number of cases, testing and preparedness.

The state today issued new guidance documents for these new sectors, giving each business or activity adequate time to create reopening plans. The following are the sectors that will be allowed to reopen next Friday:

-Bars and wineries https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-restaurants-bars.pdf

-Family entertainment centers https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-family-entertainment.pdf

-Museums, galleries and zoos https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-zoos-museums.pdf

-Fitness facilities https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-fitness.pdf

-Campgrounds https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-campgrounds.pdf

-Hotels https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-hotels-lodging-rentals.pdf

-Satellite wagering facilities https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-cardrooms-racetracks.pdf

Not included in today’s announcement were nail salons, movie theaters and youth sports, which are not authorized to reopen.Most of the new businesses are part of “Stage 3” on the state’s 4-Stage Reopening Plan.

Small businesses that need assistance complying with the guidance should look into the San Bernardino County COVID Compliant Business Partnership Program, https://sbcovid19.com/covid-compliant-business-partnership-program/. Participating small businesses can receive up to $2,500 in funding to pay for improvement, equipment, and supplies needed to comply with safety guidance.

Meeting the State’s Readiness Criteria

As announced last week, our County must continue to meet the state’s readiness criteria to continue our reopening process. We are well into the opening of accelerated Phase 2 businesses, and our numbers are holding.

-We continue to have fewer than 8 percent of residents testing positive on a weekly basis

-We have exceeded the required capacity for contact tracers (see related story below)

-We continue to build and maintain testing capacity

We thank all our businesses – and everyone who is patronizing these businesses – for following public health safety guidelines. We are progressing because we’ve all done our part. Residents are wearing face coverings, practicing physical distancing and washing their hands when entering a business (or facility). Businesses are taking care of employees and making appropriate operational changes to ensure safety. And the County is increasing testing and ensuring we have the ability to provide healthcare should there be a surge.

We are still very much #SBCountyTogether when it comes to staying healthy AND getting our economy back on track.

SB County Will Soon Share Guidelines for Schools to Reopen in August

Our County Superintendent of Schools Ted Alejandre took time in today’s weekly video briefing to congratulate graduating seniors, thank the County’s 33 school districts that worked very hard to provide distance learning as much as possible, and also share that there will be official guidelines for the districts coming out next week.

“We know how important it is to our families and students to be back in the classroom, and we all want to provide the safest environment possible for our staff and returning students,” said Alejandre. “I’ve been working with district superintendents, state agencies and as part of the state superintendent’s Back to School Task Force to develop key areas of guidance for schools on how to reopen. This guidance is being finalized now by the Department of Education and is expected to be released next week, along with another set of key guidelines being developed by the California Department of Public Health. This will all be critical information for districts to finalize their planning for the new school year.”

Alejandre said that most district calendars plan to have schools starting in August, but some will be pushed out based on conditions on the ground. The Superintendent’s office has been working in close collaboration with the Department of Public Health to determine the timeline for each district.

“All districts have been planning for different reopening scenarios that could include onsite traditional learning, distant learning and a hybrid model, said Alejandre. “Health and safety is critical, so when looking at social distancing for example, a traditional classroom that might usually hold 34 students may only have the capacity for 12. We are looking at staggered schedules and other modifications, especially as it relates to social distancing, personal hygiene and transportation.”

Districts will continue to have key conversations with labor and management groups to ensure reopening is part of a team effort. Districts have been surveying parents and community to gather input, concerns and recommendations. Districts are also beefing up communications channels so all parents are aware of new policies and procedures.

Finally, a County Collaborative has been established with representatives from all 33 districts, which will ensure our districts are sharing with each other the best ideas, strategies and resources to have a successful reopening for all 500 schools and 400,000 students in San Bernardino County.

Q&A with Esri Founder Jack Dangermond, Part 2

This second part of Chairman Curt Hagman’s interview with ESRI Founder and President Jack Dangermond video offers a broader discussion of ESRI’s contributions to society. The conversation touches on the company’s work on previous crises (including the Northridge earthquake and Hurricane Katrina) to its current efforts to help businesses rebound from the recent strict lockdowns.

https://youtu.be/Z9EwJQcV6BA

Dangermond also discussed the various agencies that rely on ESRI technology (including Caltrans, state and local fire departments, and various law enforcement agencies) as well as the potential for helping address societal issues ranging from homelessness to the digital divide.

Orientación de preparación emitida para gimnasios, bares, museos y otros negocios y actividades

California permitirá que escuelas, campamentos, bares, gimnasios y otros sectores comiencen a reabrirse el próximo viernes 12 de junio. Estas son algunas de las nuevas empresas y actividades que el Departamento de Salud Pública del Estado anunció hoy que pueden reabrirse en aquellos condados que han alcanzado ciertos umbrales en el número de casos, pruebas y preparación.

El estado emitió hoy nuevos documentos de orientación para estos nuevos sectores, dando a cada negocio o actividad tiempo suficiente para crear planes de reapertura. Los siguientes son los sectores a los que se permitirá reabrir el próximo viernes:

-Bares y bodegas https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-restaurants-bars.pdf

-Centros de entretenimiento familiar https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-family-entertainment.pdf

-Museos, galerías y zoológicos https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-zoos-museums.pdf

-Instalaciones de gimnasios https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-fitness.pdf

-Terrenos de campamentos https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-campgrounds.pdf

-Hoteles https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-hotels-lodging-rentals.pdf

-Instalaciones de apuestas por satélite https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-cardrooms-racetracks.pdf

No se incluyeron en el anuncio de hoy salones de uñas, cines y deportes juveniles, que no están autorizados a reabrir. La mayoría de los nuevos negocios son parte de la “Etapa 3” en el Plan de Reapertura de la Etapa 4 del estado.

Las pequeñas empresas que necesitan asistencia para cumplir con la orientación deben examinar el Programa de Asociación Empresarial compatible con COVID del Condado de San Bernardino, https://sbcovid19.com/covid-compliant-business-partnership-program/.  Las pequeñas empresas participantes pueden recibir hasta $2,500 en fondos para pagar la mejora, el equipo y los suministros necesarios para cumplir con la orientación de seguridad.

Cumplir con los criterios de preparación del estado

Como se anunció la semana pasada, nuestro Condado debe continuar cumpliendo con los criterios de preparación del estado para continuar nuestro proceso de reapertura. Estamos bien en la apertura de negocios acelerados de la Fase 2, y nuestros números están en juego.

-Seguimos teniendo menos del 8 por ciento de los residentes dando positivos semanalmente

-Hemos excedido la capacidad requerida para los rastreadores de contacto (ver historia relacionada a continuación)

-Seguimos construyendo y manteniendo la capacidad de prueba

Agradecemos a todas nuestras empresas, y a todos los que están patrocinando a estos negocios, por seguir las pautas de seguridad de salud pública. Estamos progresando porque todos hemos hecho nuestra parte. Los residentes están usando coberturas faciales, practicando distanciamiento físico y lavándose las manos al entrar en un negocio (o instalación). Las empresas están cuidando a los empleados y haciendo los cambios operativos adecuados para garantizar la seguridad. Y el Condado está aumentando las pruebas y asegurando que tenemos la capacidad de proporcionar atención médica en caso de que haya un aumento.

Todavía estamos muy #SBCountyTogether cuando se trata de mantenerse saludable y volver a poner nuestra economía en marcha.

El condado de SB pronto compartirá pautas para que las escuelas reabran en agosto

El Superintendente de Escuelas del Condado Ted Alejandre tomó tiempo en la sesión informativa semanal de hoy para felicitar a los graduados, agradecer a los 33 distritos escolares del Condado que trabajaron muy duro para proporcionar enseñanza a distancia tanto como sea posible, y también compartir que habrá pautas oficiales para los distritos que salen la próxima semana.

“Sabemos lo importante que es para nuestras familias y estudiantes estar de vuelta en el salón, y todos queremos proporcionar el ambiente más seguro posible para nuestro personal y los estudiantes que regresan”, dijo Alejandre. “He estado trabajando con superintendentes de distrito, agencias estatales y como parte del Grupo de Trabajo de Regreso a la Escuela del superintendente estatal para desarrollar áreas clave de orientación para las escuelas sobre cómo reabrir. Esta guía está siendo finalizada ahora por el Departamento de Educación y se espera que sea publicada la próxima semana, junto con otro conjunto de directrices clave que está desarrollando el Departamento de Salud Pública de California. Todo esto será información crítica para que los distritos finalicen su planificación para el nuevo año escolar”.

Alejandre dijo que la mayoría de los calendarios del distrito planean tener escuelas a partir de agosto, pero algunos serán expulsados en función de las condiciones sobre el terreno. La oficina del Superintendente ha estado trabajando en estrecha colaboración con el Departamento de Salud Pública para determinar el cronograma para cada distrito.

“Todos los distritos han estado planeando diferentes escenarios de reapertura que podrían incluir el aprendizaje tradicional in situ, el aprendizaje a distancia y un modelo híbrido, dijo Alejandre.  “La salud y la seguridad son fundamentales, por lo que cuando se mira el distanciamiento social, por ejemplo, un salón tradicional que normalmente podría albergar a 34 estudiantes sólo puede tener la capacidad de 12. Estamos viendo horarios escalonados y otras modificaciones, especialmente en lo que se refiere al distanciamiento social, la higiene personal y el transporte”.

Los distritos continuarán teniendo conversaciones clave con grupos laborales y de gestión para asegurar que la reapertura sea parte de un esfuerzo de equipo. Los distritos han estado encuestando a los padres y a la comunidad para reunir aportes, preocupaciones y recomendaciones. Los distritos también están fortaleciendo los canales de comunicación para que todos los padres estén al tanto de nuevas políticas y procedimientos.

Finalmente, se ha establecido una Colaboración del Condado con representantes de los 33 distritos, lo que asegurará que nuestros distritos compartan entre sí las mejores ideas, estrategias y recursos para tener una reapertura exitosa para las 500 escuelas y 400,000 estudiantes en el Condado de San Bernardino.

Preguntas y respuestas con el fundador de Esri Jack Dangermond, Parte 2

Esta segunda parte de la entrevista del presidente Curt Hagman con el fundador y presidente de ESRI Jack Dangermond ofrece una discusión más amplia de las contribuciones de ESRI a la sociedad. La conversación toca el trabajo de la compañía en crisis anteriores (incluyendo el terremoto de Northridge y el huracán Katrina) a sus esfuerzos actuales para ayudar a las empresas a recuperarse de los recientes cierres estrictos.

https://youtu.be/Z9EwJQcV6BA

Dangermond también discutió las diversas agencias que dependen de la tecnología ESRI (incluyendo Caltrans, los departamentos estatales y locales de bomberos, y varios organismos encargados de hacer cumplir la ley), así como el potencial para ayudar a abordar problemas sociales que van desde la falta de vivienda hasta la brecha digital.

New guidelines allow places of worship to resume services

The County today announced the reopening of places of worship with new State-specified guidelines. Under the new State guidance, issued this morning, places of worship can hold religious services, including funerals, if attendance is limited to 25 percent of a building’s capacity, but no more than 100 attendees.

“This is a great first step for our residents of faith who have refrained from gathering for more than two months,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “The COVID-19 virus is still very present throughout our county. With places of worship, dine-in restaurants, stores, and malls now suddenly open, it is more important than ever that we practice physical distancing, wear face coverings in public, and frequently wash our hands to protect ourselves and those around us.”

The State this morning issued new guidance for religious services and cultural ceremonies, https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-places-of-worship.pdf, that encourage organizations to continue online services and activities, especially for the protection of those who are most at risk from COVID-19, including older adults and people with specific medical conditions.

To reopen for religious services and funerals, places of worship must:

  • Establish and implement a COVID-19 prevention plan for every location, train staff on the plan, and regularly evaluate workplaces for compliance.
  • Train employees and volunteers on COVID-19, including how to prevent it from spreading and which underlying health conditions may make individuals more susceptible to contracting the virus.
  • Implement cleaning and disinfecting protocols.
  • Set physical distancing guidelines.
  • Recommend that staff and guests wear cloth face coverings, and screen staff for temperature and symptoms at the beginning of their shifts.
  • Set parameters around or consider eliminating singing and group recitations. These activities dramatically increase the risk of COVID-19 transmission. For this reason, congregants engaging in singing, particularly in the choir, and group recitation should wear face coverings at all times and when possible, these activities should be conducted outside with greater than 6-foot distancing.

Not adhering to all of the guidelines in their entirely could result in the spread of illness and the re-closing of places of worship. In 21 days, the State Department of Public Health, in consultation with the County Department of Public Health, will review and assess the impact of the religious services guidelines and provide further direction as part of a phased-in restoration of activities. This 21-day interval accounts for seven days for religious communities to prepare and reopen in addition to a 14-day incubation period of COVID-19.

Local information about COVID-19 can be found on the County’s COVID-19 website, http://sbcovid19.com.

Las nuevas pautas permiten a lugares religiosos reanudar los servicios.

El Condado anunció hoy la reapertura de los lugares religiosos con nuevas pautas especificadas por el Estado. Bajo la nueva guía del Estado, emitida esta mañana, los lugares de oración pueden celebrar servicios religiosos, incluyendo funerales, si la asistencia está limitada al 25 por ciento de la capacidad de un edificio, pero no más de 100 asistentes.

“Este es un gran primer paso para nuestros residentes de fe que se han abstenido de reunirse durante más de dos meses”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “El virus COVID-19 todavía está muy presente en todo nuestro condado. Con lugares religiosos, restaurantes, tiendas y centros comerciales abiertos de repente, es más importante que practiquemos el distanciamiento físico, usemos cubiertas faciales en público y con frecuencia nos lavemos las manos para protegernos a nosotros mismos y a los que nos rodean”.

El Estado ha publicado esta mañana nuevas orientaciones para los servicios religiosos y las ceremonias culturales, https://covid19.ca.gov/pdf/guidance-places-of-worship.pdf, que animan a las organizaciones a continuar los servicios y actividades en línea, especialmente para la protección de las personas que están en mayor riesgo de COVID-19, incluidos los adultos mayores y las personas con condiciones médicas específicas.

Para reabrir los servicios religiosos y los funerales, los lugares de oración deben:

–Establecer e implementar un plan de prevención COVID-19 para cada ubicación, capacitar al personal del plan y evaluar regularmente los lugares de trabajo para el cumplimiento.

— – Entrenar a empleados y voluntarios en COVID-19, incluyendo cómo evitar que se propague y qué condiciones de salud subyacentes pueden hacer que las personas sean más susceptibles a contraer el virus.

–Implementar protocolos de limpieza y desinfección.

–Establecer pautas de distanciamiento físico.

–Recomendar que el personal y los huéspedes usen cubiertas de la cara, y tomar la temperatura del personal y detectar los síntomas al comienzo de sus turnos.

–Establecer parámetros alrededor o considerar la eliminación de cantos y recitaciones de grupo. Estas actividades aumentan drásticamente el riesgo de transmisión de COVID-19. Por esta razón, los congregantes que participan en el canto, particularmente en el coro, y la recitación grupal debe usar cubiertas faciales en todo momento y cuando sea posible, estas actividades deben llevarse a cabo fuera con un distanciamiento superior a 6 pies.

No adherirse a todas las pautas en su totalidad podría resultar en la propagación de la enfermedad y el recierre de los lugares de oración. En 21 días, el Departamento de Salud Pública del Estado, en consulta con el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado, revisará y evaluará el impacto de las directrices de servicios religiosos y proporcionará más dirección como parte de una restauración gradual de las actividades. Este intervalo de 21 días representa siete días para que las comunidades religiosas se preparen y reabran, además de un período de incubación de 14 días de COVID-19.

The public can also contact the COVID-19 hotline from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday at (909) 387-3911, or email the County at coronavirus@dph.sbcounty.gov.

County cleared to reopen restaurants, stores and malls

Because San Bernardino County has flattened the COVID-19 curve and secured the resources needed to continue keeping the novel coronavirus under control, dine-in restaurants, stores and malls can now reopen with safety measures throughout the county after a state-ordered shutdown that lasted more than two months.

“San Bernardino County businesses and residents worked very hard and made tremendous sacrifices to make this moment possible,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Your efforts to keep our community safe and healthy have paid off. We can now proceed significantly further toward resuming our normal lives.”

“This virus is still very present throughout our county, state and nation, so we must remain vigilant by physical distancing, wearing face coverings, and washing our hands often. But our goal of minimizing illness and building the capacity to protect the vulnerable, serve the sick, and track the virus in our communities has been achieved,” Hagman said.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to our public health and healthcare professionals, who are putting in long hours on the front lines of this battle, and to our County Government team for working around the clock in support of those efforts,” he said.

The California Department of Public Health on Saturday, May 23, approved the county’s request to reopen more businesses as part of the governor’s accelerated phase two. The county submitted a revised request to move into the next phase on Friday, May 22 based on the new criteria announced by the state on Monday, May 18.

As part of the accelerated Stage 2 phase of the state recovery plan, destination retail stores, including shopping malls and swap meets, and dine-in restaurants can now reopen in San Bernardino County. Businesses that plan to reopen are required to follow state guidance detailed at https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance/. Gyms, hair and nail salons, barber shops, movie theaters, sports and entertainment venues, libraries, bars and wineries, hotels and motels, and public swimming facilities won’t be authorized to reopen until stages 3 and 4.

Drive-in and virtual worship services and faith-based counseling services are authorized to proceed, and the governor said additional guidance for religious services will be announced on Monday, May 25.

The governor on Monday announced new benchmarks counties had to achieve to accelerate business reopening. The announcement came shortly after San Bernardino County sent the governor two letters seeking flexibility in charting a course for recovery. One letter was signed by the Board of Supervisors and the mayors of the county’s 24 cities and towns, the other was a joint letter from the counties of San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange and San Diego, which combined account for about a third of the state’s population.

“Our efforts clearly made a difference,” Hagman said. “Our goal now, besides achieving additional openings, is to keep our businesses open by continuing to keep our curve flat by taking precautions and avoiding unnecessary risk.”

The county is helping small businesses operate safely and stay open through the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program. By agreeing to enforce physical distancing, require customers and employees to wear face coverings, and practicing prudent hygiene, small businesses can receive up to $2,500 to implement those measures. Businesses can apply through the county’s COVID-19 website, http://sbcovid19.com.

Businesses should also heed county and state guidance for a safe and sustainable reopening:

El condado autorizado para reabrir restaurantes, tiendas y centros comerciales

Debido a que el Condado de San Bernardino ha aplanado la curva COVID-19 y asegurado los recursos necesarios para continuar manteniendo el nuevo coronavirus bajo control, restaurantes, tiendas y centros comerciales pueden reabrir ahora con medidas de seguridad en todo el condado después de un cierre ordenado por el estado que duró más de dos meses.

“Las empresas y los residentes del Condado de San Bernardino trabajaron muy duro e hicieron enormes sacrificios para hacer posible este momento”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Sus esfuerzos para mantener a nuestra comunidad segura y saludable han dado sus frutos. Ahora podemos avanzar significativamente más hacia la reanudación de nuestras vidas normales”.

“Este virus sigue estando muy presente en todo nuestro condado, estado y nación, así que debemos permanecer vigilantes por distanciamiento físico, usando cubiertas para la cara y lavándonos las manos a menudo. Pero nuestro objetivo de minimizar la enfermedad y crear la capacidad para proteger a los vulnerables, servir a los enfermos y rastrear el virus en nuestras comunidades se ha logrado”, dijo Hagman.

Debemos una deuda de gratitud a nuestros profesionales de salud pública y de salud, que están poniendo largas horas en las líneas de frente de esta batalla, y a nuestro equipo del gobierno del condado por trabajar las 24 horas del día en apoyo de esos esfuerzos”, dijo.

El Departamento de Salud Pública de California aprobó el sábado 23 de mayo la solicitud del condado de reabrir más negocios como parte de la acelerada fase dos del gobernador. El condado presentó una solicitud revisada para pasar a la siguiente fase el viernes 22 de mayo, basada en los nuevos criterios anunciados por el estado el lunes 18 de mayo.

Como parte de la fase acelerada de la Etapa 2 del plan de recuperación estatal, las tiendas minoristas de destino, incluyendo centros comerciales y encuentros de intercambio y restaurantes de comedor ahora pueden reabrir en el condado de San Bernardino. Las empresas que planean reabrir deben seguir las instrucciones del estado detalladas en https: https://covid19.ca.gov/industry-guidance/. Gimnasios, peluquerías y salones de uñas, barberías, salas de cine, lugares deportivos y de entretenimiento, bibliotecas, bares y bodegas, hoteles y moteles, e instalaciones públicas de natación no estarán autorizados a reabrir hasta las etapas 3 y 4.

Los servicios religiosos virtuales, a través de su automóvil y los servicios de consejería basados en la fe están autorizados a continuar, y el gobernador dijo que se anunciará una guía adicional para los servicios religiosos el lunes 25 de mayo.

El gobernador anunció el lunes que los nuevos distritos de referencia tenían que lograr para acelerar la reapertura de los negocios. El anuncio llegó poco después de que el Condado de San Bernardino envió al gobernador dos cartas buscando flexibilidad en la elaboración de un curso para la recuperación. Una carta fue firmada por la Junta de Supervisores y los alcaldes de las 24 ciudades y pueblos del condado, la otra fue una carta conjunta de los condados de San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange y San Diego, que en conjunto representan aproximadamente un tercero de la población del estado.

“Nuestros esfuerzos claramente hicieron una diferencia”, dijo Hagman. “nuestro objetivo ahora, además de lograr aperturas adicionales, es mantener abiertas nuestras empresas, manteniendo nuestra curva plana tomando precauciones y evitando riesgos innecesarios.”

El condado está ayudando a las pequeñas empresas a operar de manera segura y permanecer abiertas a través del Programa de Asociación de Negocios que cumple con COVID. Al aceptar hacer cumplir el distanciamiento físico, exigir a los clientes y empleados que usen cubiertas para la cara, y practicar una higiene prudente, las pequeñas empresas pueden recibir hasta $2,500 para implementar esas medidas. Las empresas pueden solicitar su solicitud a través del sitio web COVID-19 del condado, http://sbcovid19.com.

Las empresas también deben tomar en cuenta y poner atención a las directrices del condado y del estado para una reapertura segura y sostenible:

May 22, 2020 Daily Update

This Daily Update (Monday through Friday) will share important news, information and resources related to how we are battling and getting through the coronavirus pandemic. We are here for you. #SBCountyTogether

County Submits Plan to State for Approval to Open Stores, Restaurants

Earlier this week, the state provided “readiness criteria” that would allow more counties to transition more quickly into a Later Stage 2 opening, which means reopening our retail stores, malls and dine-in restaurants.

Today the County announced that San Bernardino County meets this readiness criteria, and today we have submitted our plan to the state and are requesting fast-track approval for our reopening. Approval of this “Variance and Attestation Form” would allow the County to accelerate Stage 2 opening by early next week, if not sooner.

This would allow malls, retail stores and dine-in restaurants to resume operations, with COVID-compliant safety practices in place (face covering, social distancing and sanitation).

“We know our businesses are hurting, and we know business owners are doing everything they can to prepare to open safely,” said Curt Hagman, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “We are with you on wanting to reopen as fast as possible, and we’re going to work around the clock until you can.”

Are Swimming Pools Safe from COVID-19?

With the return of hot weather, many County residents are eying swimming pools longingly and thinking a nice dip in the water would be just the thing to cool off and relax. And what better distraction for children tired of being stuck indoors!

But should we be concerned if the coronavirus can be transmitted through a swimming pool or hot tub? Is it safe to take a swim in one’s backyard or a public pool?

The good news is that, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of swimming pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance and disinfection (i.e., with chlorine and bromine) should eliminate the coronavirus. Moreover, the sheer volume of water is likely to dilute the virus — which means swimming in lakes, rivers or the ocean also appears safe.

Of course, this doesn’t remove the concern about being around other people using the pool and its amenities! It’s ridiculous to use a face mask in water, so the real key to being safe is to maintain the same social distancing procedures used elsewhere.

  • Maintain adequate distance between swimmers – for now that means cutting down on the horseplay!
  • Avoid large groups or parties.
  • Keep lounge chairs and other pool furniture properly distanced (or remove them completely).
  • Use hand sanitizer and be sure common restrooms are cleaned and adequately stocked with soap and paper towels.
  • Regularly disinfect common surfaces such as gates, door handles, rails, tables, chairs, and drinking fountains.
  • Remind guests to wash hands regularly … and as always, to stay away if they are sick.

County Approves First COVID Compliant Business Partner!

Congratulations to Imperial Cleaners of Chino Hills and owner Mira Koh, who quickly jumped on her application to be a COVID Compliant Business Partner. She not only receives a grant for $2,500 to help make safety improvements for her business, but she can display a window sign that shows her customers she is taking the necessary steps to keep them safe.

Start your application now! The COVID Compliant Business Partnership will assist 12,000 County businesses, with grants being issued to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are exhausted.  Businesses can begin the application process by going to http://sbcovid19.com/covid-compliant-business-partnership-program/, where application contents and other submission requirements are listed. The application deadline is August 31, 2020.

To be eligible for participation in the Partnership, a business must have been located in San Bernardino County for at least one year, have between one and 100 employees, and be current on property tax payments. Nonprofit organizations with storefronts are eligible for the program. A key County priority is to help companies that have not received support from either the state or the federal government. Businesses that are too new or too large for the funding can still participate and receive a window sign.

A Memorial Day Message from your Board of Supervisors

For many, Memorial Day weekend is kick-off of the summer season — a time devoted to barbecues, picnics and family gatherings.

There is nothing wrong with that; we all want to relax and enjoy time with our loved ones. However, this Monday let us not forget the profound significance of the Memorial Day holiday: it is a day to remember, honor and mourn the brave men and women who gave their lives while serving in our nation’s armed forces.

As we enjoy the privilege of living freely in this great nation, we should recall that this freedom has been paid for by the ultimate sacrifice of many who came before us. We owe them a debt of gratitude.

We wish you all a wonderful holiday weekend.

Actualización diaria del 22 de mayo de 2020

Esta Actualización Diaria (de lunes a viernes) compartirá noticias importantes, información y recursos relacionados con cómo estamos luchando y onsiguiendo a través de la pandemia del coronavirus. Estamos aquí para usted. #SBCountyTogether

Para las últimas estadísticas y para obtener una lista completa de las próximas ubicaciones de pruebas y enlaces, desplácese hasta la parte inferior de la actualización diaria de hoy.

Sintonice Facebook en vivo hoy, viernes, 22 de mayo, a las 11 a.m., para la actualización del COVID-19 del Condado de San Bernardino. Si no puedes sintonizar esta mañana, tendremos la transmisión en vivo disponible para ver en nuestra página de Facebook.


El Condado envía el Plan al Estado para su aprobación de abrir tiendas, y restaurantes
A principios de esta semana, el estado proporcionó “criterios de preparación” que permitirían a más condados pasar más rápidamente a una apertura posterior de la etapa 2, lo que significa reabrir nuestras tiendas minoristas, centros comerciales y restaurantes de comedor.

Hoy el Condado anunció que el Condado de San Bernardino cumple con estos criterios de preparación, y hoy hemos enviado nuestro plan al estado y estamos solicitando la aprobación rápida para nuestra reapertura. La aprobación de este “Formulario de Variación y Atestación” permitiría al Condado acelerar la apertura de la Etapa 2 a principios de la próxima semana, si no antes.

Esto permitiría a los centros comerciales, tiendas minoristas y restaurantes de entrada a comer reanudar sus operaciones, con prácticas de seguridad compatibles con COVID (cobertura facial, distanciamiento social y saneamiento).

“Sabemos que nuestros negocios están sufriendo, y sabemos que los propietarios de negocios están haciendo todo lo posible para prepararse para abrir de forma segura”, dijo Curt Hagman, presidente de la Junta de Supervisores. “”Estamos con ustedes en querer reabrir lo más rápido posible, y vamos a trabajar alrededor del reloj hasta que pueda”.

¿Las piscinas son seguras de COVID-19?
Con el regreso del clima caluroso, muchos residentes del condado están echando una ojeada a piscinas y pensando que un agradable chapuzón en el agua sería lo que hay que hacer para refrescarse y relajarse. ¡Y qué mejor distracción para los niños cansados de estar atrapados en el interior!

Pero, ¿deberíamos preocuparnos si el coronavirus puede transmitirse a través de una piscina o una bañera de hidromasaje? ¿Es seguro nadar en el patio trasero o en una piscina pública?

La buena noticia es que, según los Centros para el Control de Enfermedades (CDC), no hay evidencia de que el COVID-19 pueda ser propagado a los humanos a través del uso de piscinas y bañeras de hidromasaje. El correcto funcionamiento, mantenimiento y desinfección (es decir, con cloro y bromo) debe eliminar el coronavirus. Además, es probable que el volumen de agua diluya el virus, lo que significa que nadar en lagos, ríos o el océano también parece seguro.

¡Por supuesto, esto no elimina la preocupación de estar alrededor de otras personas usando la piscina y sus comodidades! Es ridículo usar una máscara facial en el agua, así que la clave real para estar seguro es mantener los mismos procedimientos de distanciamiento social que se usan en otros lugares.

  •  Mantener una distancia adecuada entre los nadadores – por ahora eso significa reducir en el juego de caballos!
  •  Evite grupos o fiestas grandes.
  •  Mantenga las tumbonas y otros muebles de la piscina correctamente distanciados (o retírelos por completo).
  •  Use desinfectante de manos y asegúrese de que los baños comunes estén limpios y adecuadamente abastectos con jabón y toallas de papel.
  •  Desinfecte regularmente superficies comunes como puertas, manijas de puertas, rieles, mesas, sillas y fuentes para beber.
  •  Recuerde a los huéspedes que se laven las manos regularmente … y como siempre, mantenerse alejados si están enfermos.

¡El condado aprueba al primer socio comercial del Programa de Asociación empresarial que cumple con las normas de COVID!

Felicidades a Imperial Cleaners de Chino Hills y al propietario Mira Koh, que rápidamente saltó a su solicitud para ser un socio comercial del Programa de Asociación empresarial que cumple con las normas de COVID. No sólo recibe una subvención de $2,500 para ayudar a hacer mejoras de seguridad para su negocio, pero puede mostrar un letrero de ventana que muestra a sus clientes que está tomando las medidas necesarias para mantenerlos seguros.

¡Inicia tu aplicación ahora! el Programa de Asociación empresarial que cumple con las normas de COVID asistirá a 12,000 empresas del condado, con subvenciones que se emiten a solicitantes calificados en una base de primer-venir, primero-servido hasta que los fondos se agoten. Las empresas pueden comenzar el proceso de solicitud en http://sbcovid19.com/covid-compliant-business-partnership-program/, donde se enumeran los contenidos de la solicitud y otros requisitos de presentación. La fecha límite de la solicitud es el 31 de agosto de 2020.

Para ser elegible para participar en la Asociación, un negocio debe haber estado ubicado en el Condado de San Bernardino por lo menos un año, tener entre uno y 100 empleados, y estar al corriente en los pagos de impuestos sobre la propiedad. Las organizaciones sin fines de lucro con escaparates son elegibles para el programa. Una prioridad clave del Condado es ayudar a las compañías que no han recibido apoyo del gobierno estatal o federal. Las empresas que son demasiado nuevas o demasiado grandes para la financiación todavía pueden participar y recibir un letrero de ventana.

Un mensaje del Día de los Caídos de su Junta de Supervisores
Para muchos, el fin de semana del Día de los Caídos es el inicio de la temporada de verano, un tiempo dedicado a barbacoas, picnics y reuniones familiares.

No hay nada de malo en eso; todos queremos relajarnos y disfrutar del tiempo con nuestros seres queridos. Sin embargo, este lunes no olvidemos el profundo significado de la fiesta del Día de los Caídos: es un día para recordar, honrar y lamentar a los valientes hombres y mujeres que dieron su vida mientras servían en las fuerzas armadas de nuestra nación.

Al disfrutar del privilegio de vivir libremente en esta gran nación, debemos recordar que esta libertad ha sido pagada por el sacrificio final de muchos que vinieron antes que nosotros. Les debemos una deuda de gratitud.

Les deseamos a todos un maravilloso fin de semana festivo.

San Bernardino County Museum Association announces new executive director

The San Bernardino County Museum Association (SBCMA), the nonprofit organization established to support the San Bernardino County Museum, announced the selection of non-profit leader Zachary Tucker, MPPS, CFRE as its next Executive Director.

Tucker will lead the 60 year-old Museum Association in its goal to provide financial sustainability, resource development, and capacity building for the Museum.  The Museum has successfully embarked on bold new initiatives led by Museum Director Melissa Russo. Russo stated “Zachary Tucker is the ideal partner to lead the Association board’s fundraising efforts which are so necessary to maintain the Museum’s status as a highly regarded, accredited institution.  Our strategic plan to enhance visitor engagement, awareness, accessibility, and collections management, is well underway, and Zack’s appointment is welcome news.”

Museum Association Board President Abby Flores describes the Museum as “a tremendous asset for the community and a space designed to instill a life-long love of learning and curiosity in our children.” Flores adds that in “We are thrilled to have Zack join our team. His extensive background in non-profit management and fundraising will be critical to the Association’s ability to support the Museum and its vision for the future.”

Tucker’s nearly 30-year career has all been within the non-profit sector, the majority of it in the Inland Empire. He brings to the position an extensive background in nonprofit management, local knowledge of our region and a commitment to increasing the quality of life through the development of a strong nonprofit sector.  He has worked or been involved as a volunteer board member of educational, healthcare and arts organizations.

“I could not be happier to join the Museum Association family and build on the work of board members and staff alike that have come before me to support this important regional cultural asset.”

Working with Arts Consulting Group, one of the world’s leading arts executive search consulting firms, an executive search committee consisting of SBCMA Board of Directors reviewed a number of excellent candidates.  The Board recently voted unanimously to appoint Tucker.  His appointment was effective May 11, 2020.

Tucker earned his master’s degree in Communication from the University of Denver and his undergraduate degree in History from CSU, San Bernardino. He resides with his wife and two children in Redlands.

The San Bernardino County Museum Association (the Museum Association) solicits, manages, and distributes funds, engages in programs, and advocates to benefit the mission of the San Bernardino County Museum (the Museum).  The Museum was founded in 1952 by the Museum Association.  It opened to the public in 1957, and was donated to the County of San Bernardino in 1961.  The facility moved from Bloomington, California to its present location in Redlands in 1974, and is a San Bernardino County department in the Community Services Group.  Additional branch sites include the Victor Valley Museum in Apple Valley, the Asistencia in Redlands, the Yucaipa Adobe, the Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery in Colton, the Yorba-Slaughter Adobe in Chino, and the John Rains House in Rancho Cucamonga.

The Museum is an educational and cultural mainstay in the region. With a collection of more than 3 million objects, the Museum plays an integral role in providing cultural and educational programming for the residents of San Bernardino County and beyond.  Since the Museum’s founding, the Museum Association has partnered with the County to assist the Museum in developing deeper visitor engagement, enhancing stewardship and utilization of its collection, refreshing its facilities, diversifying sources of revenue, and building its organizational capacity.
