March 25, 2022 Update

 
 

County terminates state of emergency

Strides the county has made in battling COVID-19 allowed the Board of Supervisors to terminate a nearly two-year-old local state of emergency today.

Actions taken by the Board today end the authority granted to the Chief Executive Officer to make emergency procurement and staffing decisions but preserve the ability of first responders to support the emergency medical system by transporting patients.

The county is now able to safely end the local state of emergency because:

  • COVID-19 case rates are dropping significantly within the county
  • More than 3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered among nearly 2.2 million county residents.
  • Testing and vaccination operations supported by the state of emergency are winding down as the effects of the pandemic become more manageable

“COVID-19 is still with us, and we continue to encourage residents to be cautious and get vaccinated. What today’s actions signal is that we have progressed to the point where extraordinary emergency spending and resource-allocation powers are no longer necessary,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “I join my fellow Board members in commending County employees and especially the residents of San Bernardino County for the hard work and courage they have invested in this fight.”

One provision of the now-terminated state of emergency that is still necessary allowed first responders, primarily fire agencies, that don’t ordinarily transport patients to do so using non-ambulance vehicles. 

Because COVID-19 continues to strain the county’s emergency medical system through paramedic staffing shortages and disruptions in supply chains, the Board of Supervisors today created a new state of emergency exclusively to preserve the one provision from the previous state of emergency that allows other first responders to augment the emergency medical system.

County Supports Schools in their Efforts to Comply with State Mandates

San Bernardino County is committed to support schools throughout the county as they grapple with a variety of challenges in their effort to comply with State-imposed student and staff mask mandates.

Throughout the pandemic, San Bernardino County and our local school districts have worked collaboratively to implement the State’s required pandemic response. The County is very proud of and thankful for the hard work and dedication shown by the County Superintendent of School’s Office and all of the district leaders, school administrators, teachers, faculty, and support staff throughout the county.

The California Department of Public Health is responsible for the current masking requirements. Neither the County nor our local school districts have the legal discretion to disregard these mandates.

The County looks forward to its continued partnership and collaboration with school districts as we provide for the health and safety of our residents.

State to Ease Mask Rules Wednesday February 16

San Bernardino County doesn’t have mask rules for adults or children, but the State applies its mask requirements to everyone in California.

Those State rules are about to ease now that the Omicron case and hospitalization numbers boosted by the Omicron surge have dropped dramatically.

Starting on Wednesday, the State will no longer require vaccinated people to wear masks indoors in public places. Masking indoors will be “strongly recommended” by the State for those who are vaccinated. The State will continue to require unvaccinated people to wear masks indoors.

Information on the State’s COVID-19 rules and guidelines can be found at covid19.ca.gov

2022 Homeless Point-In-Time Count Postponed

In light of the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, the federal government has authorized the county to postpone the annual Point-In-Time Count (PITC) of unsheltered homeless individuals until Feb.24.

“The health and safety of our community, those experiencing homelessness, and PITC volunteers, is of utmost importance to San Bernardino County,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman.

San Bernardino County was one of many homeless Continuums of Care throughout California seeking approval from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to briefly postpone this year’s count, which had been scheduled for Jan. 27.

The county typically collects data from people experiencing homelessness in unsheltered and sheltered locations during the annual PITC within the last 10 days of January as mandated by HUD. The count and survey is critical to secure government and private grant funding as well as other resources for local communities to assist individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

While ensuring the safety of volunteers and participants had been at the forefront of planning efforts well before the omicron surge, the county will implement heightened safety measures when the count takes place in February based on recommendations from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

  • All volunteers will be provided with a KN95 mask.
  • All hygiene kits distributed during the unsheltered count will contain KN95 masks and hand sanitizer.

The Office of Homeless Services will continue to seek volunteers for the PITC on Feb. 24. Volunteer registration can be found on https://wp.sbcounty.gov/dbh/sbchp/  under announcements. Volunteers that have already registered will receive notification from the city in which they registered to participate and will be kept informed of any changes to training or participation.

The annual PITC is coordinated by the San Bernardino County Community Revitalization Office of Homeless Services (OHS) in conjunction with the San Bernardino County Homeless Partnership and is designed to provide invaluable data on homeless individuals and families within the county on a given day and time.

If you have questions regarding the count or registration, please call (909) 501-0617 or email Claudia Doyle at claudia.doyle@hss.sbcounty.gov.

OHS works to develop countywide public and private partnerships and to coordinate services and resources to end homelessness in San Bernardino County. In doing so, OHS supports the four pillars of the County’s organizational culture of Value, Vision, Innovation and Service.

Information on OHS can be found at www.sbcounty.gov.

County curtails in-person services to help slow the surge

In an effort to slow the current COVID-19 surge, many county departments are offering services only online and over the phone, limiting visitors to their public offices through at least Jan. 28.

“We have a responsibility to do everything we can to limit the spread of the virus while still providing access to the county services people need,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman.

Services for the following County departments and offices are available by phone and online.  In some instances, in-person appointments are available for those who cannot be served remotely.

County Increasing Testing Options and Opportunities

Several months ago the Board of Supervisors foresaw how variants such as Omicron could create an increased need for testing and directed County staff to secure as many rapid-result over-the-counter (OTC) antigen test kits as possible before they became high-demand items.  

As a result, San Bernardino County is now partnering with non-profit organizations, community-based agencies, government agencies, cities, private schools and nursing homes to provide free OTC kits to ensure that there is greater availability throughout the county.

Since the launch of the COVID-19 OTC Antigen Allocation Program last month, the County has provided 116,861 over-the-counter antigen test kits to the people of San Bernardino County through partnerships with 295 agencies, including:

  • 136 Community partners, non-profits, and other similar organizations
  • 141 Local government agencies, including cities
  • 18 Healthcare-related community service organizations

County-facilitated testing sites continue to operate at a high-capacity in all parts of the County with extended hours of operation. The County-run sites alone have been testing an average of 7,000 to 8,000 residents each day who live or work in San Bernardino County. Appointments open the Friday before each week. Appointments for PCR tests are recommended, but walk-ins are accepted. Due to current testing demand, walk-ins will experience long wait lines.

All County-operated testing sites now provide free over-the-counter (OTC) antigen test kits to individuals who live or work in San Bernardino County (proof of residency or employment required). OTC antigen test kits offer results in as little as 10 minutes. Each kit contains two tests. There is a limit of one test kit per person. Learn more about how to read the test results.

The County encourages residents to visit one our County test sites if they are having trouble finding test kits elsewhere. Visit sbcovid19.com/rapidtest to find online or local retail options. Please do not visit an Emergency Room or Urgent Care for COVID-19 testing unless you are experiencing severe or worsening symptoms.

Chairman Hagman Takes on COVID-19 Disinformation 

Disinformation can be dangerous. That’s why Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman has launched “On the Record with Chairman Hagman,” a series of informative videos to separate fact from fiction in the often-confusing world of COVID-19 information.

Each installment of On the Record takes on a different myth and counters it with scientific facts presented by Arrowhead Regional Medical Center physicians and other County healthcare professionals.

This week, County Health Officer Dr. Michael Sequeira talks about why it is important to get a booster vaccine.

Operation Hammer Strike Completes Week 18 

Between December 27, 2021, and January 2, 2022, investigators from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department – Marijuana Enforcement Team (MET), along with San Bernardino Sheriff’s deputies from several different Patrol Stations, served 18 search warrants at various locations in Lucerne Valley, San Gabriel, Wonder Valley, El Mirage, Twentynine Palms, and Adelanto.  MET personnel had received numerous complaints about large outdoor and indoor marijuana cultivations in these areas.  Over this past week, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s personnel located and arrested 15 suspects.  Investigators seized 7,972 marijuana plants, 4,575.7 pounds of processed marijuana, one gun, and over $212,000.00 in cash.  Investigators eradicated a total of 93 greenhouses found at these locations.

The investigations revealed the cannabis cultivations were not in compliance with California’s Medical and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA) and San Bernardino County’s ordinance prohibiting Commercial Cannabis Activity.  San Bernardino County has a law prohibiting Commercial Cannabis Activity, including growing marijuana plants outdoors.

The Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division will continue to enforce California’s cannabis laws and San Bernardino County’s ordinance regarding cannabis cultivation and distribution.  Persons found guilty of violating the state law and county ordinance are subject to fines, prosecution, and seizure of property.  

Property owners who are growing marijuana or are aware their tenants are growing marijuana on their properties in violation of the state law and local ordinances may also be subject to civil or criminal sanctions.  Property owners are encouraged to contact their local law enforcement or code compliance agency to confirm if cultivating cannabis is prohibited or allowed under specific regulations.

The suspects were cited or booked on charges of Cultivation of Cannabis, over six plants, Possession for Sales of Marijuana, Illegal Water Discharge, and Conspiracy.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is urged to contact the Sheriff’s Gangs/Narcotics Division at (909)387-8400 or NARC-MET@sbcsd.org. Callers wishing to remain anonymous may call the We-tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463), or you may leave the information on the We-Tip Hotline at www.wetip.com.

First 5 San Bernardino and Children’s Fund Received and Donated 60,000 Toys (valued at nearly $1 million) During the Holidays 

In December, thousands of toys and gifts were brought to a cold warehouse in preparation for distribution to children in San Bernardino County.  Wearing heavy coats, hats, gloves and masks, volunteers and staff had been cataloging, sorting, taking note of wishes and gathering up shopping carts full of specifically requested toys for local organizations, preschools, county organizations and churches to provide for children in need.

Joly and Jesse Ramirez, church members at Set Free Church in Highland, backed up their empty rented U-Haul van to the warehouse doors where Children’s Fund staff and volunteers were working.  “We appreciate this a lot,” said Jesse as the truck was being filled to the top with toys.  “So many low-income families are in need, and they are hurting.” The Ramirez’s are preparing for the church’s upcoming Christmas Extravaganza event where over 400 kids are expected to attend.  “This is what it’s all about, and it’s all worth it to bless a kid,” Ramirez concluded.

“For some children, the only gift under the tree this year will be a Celebration of Giving toy from Children’s Fund,” said Dr. Ciriaco “Cid” Pinedo, president & CEO of Children’s Fund.  “With the vital support of our donors, we ensure they are not forgotten.”  Pinedo explains 26% of the children living in San Bernardino County live in poverty.  Those families use their limited resources for food, shelter and basic needs.  Often, there isn’t enough left over for holiday gifts.

Children’s Fund has facilitated the Annual Celebration of Giving Toy Drive for 33 years. Additionally, for the past 15 years, First 5 San Bernardino has been a major funder of the Children’s Fund organization, also providing a $50,000 donation each year to augment and ensure that children 0-5 years old have a present for Christmas. 

“For a child, not having a gift at Christmastime would be devastating,” said Executive Director Karen Scott, First 5 San Bernardino.  “It’s vital to a child’s health and wellbeing to feel love, and we are so proud to partner with Children’s Fund to make the holidays special for the county’s young children,” Scott concluded. 

Over 30 volunteers and nine full time staff help put the toy operation together including Amy Pond Cirelli, Children’s Fund program coordinator.  “Running the Celebration of Giving warehouse is the highlight of my year,” said Cirelli.  “Knowing that so many children will be happy on Christmas morning, well, it is a really good feeling.”

Aumento de las Opciones y Oportunidades de Pruebas del Condado

Hace varios meses, la Junta de Supervisores previó cómo variantes como Omicron podrían crear una urgente necesidad de pruebas y ordenó al personal del condado que asegurara la mayor cantidad posible de kits de prueba de antígeno de resultados rápidos antes de que se convirtieran en una gran demanda para tener lo sufiente para ofrecerle a la communidad del Condado de San Bernardino.

El condado de San Bernardino se está asociando con organizaciones sin fines de lucro, agencias comunitarias, agencias gubernamentales, ciudades, escuelas privadas y hogares de ancianos para proporcionar kits de pruebas de venta libre (OTC, por sus siglas en inglés) de resultados rápidos gratuitos para garantizar una mayor disponibilidad en todo el condado.

Desde el lanzamiento del Programa de asignación de antígenos de venta libre COVID-19 el mes pasado, el condado ha proporcionado 116,861 kits de prueba de antígenos de venta libre a la gente del condado de San Bernardino a través de asociaciones con 295 agencias, que incluyen:

136 socios comunitarios, organizaciones sin fines de lucro y otras organizaciones similares

141 Agencias gubernamentales locales, incluidas las ciudades

18 organizaciones de servicios comunitarios relacionados con la salud

Los sitios de prueba facilitados por el condado continúan operando a alta capacidad en todas las partes del condado con horarios extendidos de operación. Solo los sitios administrados por el condado han estado evaluando un promedio de 7,000 a 8,000 residentes cada día que viven o trabajan en el condado de San Bernardino. Las citas abren el jueves anterior a cada semana. Se recomiendan citas para las pruebas de PCR, pero se aceptan visitas sin cita previa. Debido a la demanda actual de pruebas, los visitantes sin cita previa experimentarán largas filas de espera.

Todos los sitios de prueba operados por el condado ahora brindan kits de prueba de antígenos de venta libre (OTC) gratuitos a las personas que viven o trabajan en el condado de San Bernardino (se requiere prueba de residencia o empleo). Los kits de prueba de antígeno de venta libre ofrecen resultados en tan solo 10 minutos. Cada kit contiene dos pruebas. Hay un límite de un kit de prueba por persona.  Obtenga más información sobre cómo leer los resultados de la prueba.

El condado anima a los residentes a visitar uno de nuestros sitios de prueba del condado si están teniendo problemas para encontrar kits de prueba en otro lugar. Visite sbcovid19.com/rapidtest para encontrar opciones de venta en línea o tiendas locales. Por favor, no visite una Sala de Emergencias o Atención de Urgencia para la prueba de COVID-19 a menos que esté experimentando síntomas graves o que empeoren.

El Presidente Hagman se Enfrenta a la Desinformación Sobre el COVID-19

La desinformación puede ser peligrosa. Es por eso que el presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman, lanzó “En el Registro con Chairman Hagman”, una serie de videos informativos para separar los hechos de la ficción en el mundo a menudo confuso de la información sobre el COVID-19.

Cada entrega de En el Registro toma un mito diferente y lo contrarresta con hechos científicos presentados por los médicos del Arrowhead Regional Medical Center y otros profesionales de la salud del condado.

Esta semana, el Dr. Michael Sequeira, oficial de salud del condado, habla sobre por qué es importante recibir una vacuna de refuerzo.

Se Completa la Semana 18 de Operation Hammer Strike

Entre el 27 de diciembre del 2021 y el 2 de enero del 2022, los investigadores del Departamento del Sheriff del Condado de San Bernardino – Equipo de Aplicación de la Marihuana (MET), junto con los ayudantes del alguacil de San Bernardino de varias estaciones, cumplieron 18 órdenes de registro en varios lugares del Valle de Lucerna., San Gabriel, Wonder Valley, El Mirage, Twentynine Palms y Adelanto.  El personal del MET había recibido numerosas quejas sobre grandes cultivos de marihuana en interiores y exteriores en estas áreas. Durante la semana pasada, el personal del alguacil del condado de San Bernardino localizó y arrestó a 15 sospechosos. Los investigadores incautaron 7,972 plantas de marihuana, 4,575.7 libras de marihuana procesada, una pistola y más de $ 212,000.00 en efectivo.  Los investigadores erradicaron un total de 93 invernaderos encontrados en estos lugares.

Las investigaciones revelaron que los cultivos de cannabis no cumplían con la Ley de Seguridad y Regulación del Cannabis para Uso Médico y Adulto (MAUCRSA) de California y la ordenanza del condado de San Bernardino que prohíbe la actividad comercial del cannabis. El condado de San Bernardino tiene una ley que prohíbe la actividad comercial de cannabis, incluido el cultivo de plantas de marihuana al aire libre.

La División de Pandillas / Narcóticos del alguacil continuará haciendo cumplir las leyes de cannabis de California y la ordenanza del condado de San Bernardino con respecto al cultivo y distribución de cannabis. Las personas declaradas culpables de violar la ley estatal y la ordenanza del condado están sujetas a multas, enjuiciamiento y confiscación de propiedad.

Los propietarios que cultivan marihuana o saben que sus inquilinos cultivan marihuana en sus propiedades en violación de la ley estatal y las ordenanzas locales también pueden estar sujetos a sanciones civiles o penales. Se recomienda a los propietarios que se comuniquen con su agencia local de cumplimiento de la ley o de cumplimiento del código para confirmar si el cultivo de cannabis está prohibido o permitido por regulaciones específicas.

Los sospechosos fueron citados o registrados por cargos de cultivo de cannabis, más de seis plantas, posesión para la venta de marihuana, descarga ilegal de agua y conspiración.

First 5 San Bernardino y Children’s Fund Recibieron y Donaron 60,000 Juguetes (valorados en casi $ 1 millón) Durante los Días Festivos

En el mes de diciembre miles de juguetes y regalos fueron llevados a un almacén como preparación para la distribución a los niños del condado de San Bernardino. Con abrigos, gorros, guantes y máscaras, los voluntarios y el personal habían estado catalogando, clasificando, tomando nota de los deseos y llenando carritos de la marqueta con juguetes específicamente para organizaciones locales, preescolares, organizaciones del condado e iglesias para atender a los niños necesitados.  

Joly y Jesse Ramirez, miembros de la iglesia Set Free Church en Highland, retrocedieron con su camioneta U-Haul alquilada vacía hasta las puertas del almacén donde trabajaban el personal y los voluntarios de Children’s Fund. “Apreciamos mucho esto”, dijo Jesse mientras se llenaba el camión con juguetes. “Muchas familias de bajos ingresos están necesitados y están sufriendo”. Los Ramírez se están preparando para el próximo evento Christmas Extravaganza de la iglesia, al que se espera que asistaran más de 400 niños. “De esto se trata todo, y vale la pena bendecir a un niño”, concluyó Ramírez.  

“Para algunos niños, el único regalo debajo del árbol este año será un juguete de la Celebración de Donaciones del Fondo de Niños”, dijo el Dr. Ciriaco “Cid” Pinedo, presidente y director ejecutivo de Fondo de Niños. “Con el apoyo de nuestros donantes, nos aseguramos de que no se olviden”. Pinedo explica que el 26% de los niños que viven en el condado de San Bernardino viven en la pobreza. Esas familias utilizan sus recursos limitados para la alimentación, la vivienda y las necesidades básicas. A menudo, no queda suficiente para los regalos navideños.  

Children’s Fund ha facilitado la celebración anual de donación de juguetes durante 33 años. Además, durante los últimos 15 años, First 5 San Bernardino ha sido uno de los principales financiadores de la organización Children’s Fund, y también ha proporcionado una donación de $ 50,000 cada año para aumentar y garantizar que los niños de 0 a 5 años tengan un regalo para Navidad.

“Para un niño, no tener un regalo en Navidad sería devastador”, dijo la directora ejecutiva Karen Scott, First 5 San Bernardino. “Es vital para la salud y el bienestar de un niño sentir amor, y estamos muy orgullosos de asociarnos con Children’s Fund para hacer que los días festivos sean especiales para los niños pequeños del condado”, concluyó Scott.

Más de 30 voluntarios y nueve empleados de tiempo completo ayudaron a construir la operación de juguetes, incluida Amy Pond Cirelli, coordinadora del programa del Fondo para Niños. “Ejecutar el almacén de Celebration of Giving es lo más destacado de mi año”, dijo Cirelli. “Saber que tantos niños estarán felices en la mañana de Navidad, bueno, es una muy buena sensación”.

Edison warns of potential power outages through Thanksgiving

Southern California Edison may temporarily shut down electrical service to many areas of San Bernardino County at various times from Wednesday afternoon, through Thanksgiving, and into Friday afternoon because of strong Santa Ana winds and the threat of wildfires.

San Bernardino County urges residents to be prepared for power outages by visiting Edison at https://www.sce.com/wildfire/psps for information on outages and how to be personally notified when outages will occur in your area.

Edison reports that its Community Resource Centers and Community Crew Vehicles will be deployed in outage areas to support their customers. The centers and vehicles provide Customer Resiliency Kits, which include power shut-off information, light snacks, water, small resiliency devices, and personal protection equipment.

Edison states it will also provide additional care to households that are deenergized during the Thanksgiving holiday to help with food and supplies. Information on resources is available at https://www.sce.com/wildfire/customer-resources-and-support.

Edison reports that shutting off power is a last resort in the face of wildfire risk, and that it makes every effort to reduce the number of customers affected and the length of each outage, and turn power back on as soon as it is safe to do so. Typical restoration times range from three to eight hours after a circuit is cleared for inspection.

Information on how to contact Edison is available here: https://www.sce.com/customer-service/contact-us.
