Element Group Pursuing Equity in the County

One year ago today, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors declared racism a public health crisis and tasked the County Administrative Office with forming an Equity group that would represent the 11th element of the Countywide Vision.

Discussions that led to the declaration and equity group were inspired by the national conversation taking place in the wake of the May 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. The group was to be comprised initially of Black community members who could review each element of the Countywide Vision with an equity focus. Eventually, the group will grow to include representatives from other county communities and include an equity focus for all people. The County Administrative Office worked with trusted members of the community to identify organizations well versed in racial equity work.

“The Equity Element Group was formed of influential and prolific members of the Black community who are working together to continue improving our communities,” said Curt Hagman, chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “We are looking forward to the recommendations they will make to help us close gaps in services and opportunities for Black residents and people of color who live and work in our county.”

Members of the Equity Element Group are:

  • Hardy Brown – Black Voice News
  • Keynasia Buffong – National Black Grads
  • Pastor Samuel Casey – Churches Organized for Prophetic Engagement (COPE)
  • Willie Ellison – Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce
  • George Lamb – Faith Advisory Council for Community Transformation (FACCT)
  • Tammy Martin-Ryles – Black Chamber of Commerce
  • Tremaine Mitchell – Youth Action Project
  • Phyllis K. Morris-Green – Reimagining Our Communities (ROC)
  • Bishop Kelvin Simmons – Inland Empire Concerned African American Churches (IECAAC)
  • Deborah Smith- Gilbert – IE National Council of Negro Women (IENCNW)
  • Terrance Stone – Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy
  • Bill Thomas – NAACP, High Desert Branch
  • Dina Walker – BLU Educational Foundation
  • Reggie Webb – Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM) and Westside Action Group (WAG)
  • Keith Willis – 100 Black Men of the Inland Empire
  • Chache Wright – NAACP

The Equity Element Group is tasked with determining where there may be racial disparities among our residents in the county, if campaigns and programs could be implemented to solve those issues, and identifying what initiatives are already underway within County government or in the county community that can be highlighted and supported.

“As a member of the Equity Group, I am proud to serve in partnership with the County of San Bernardino as we address the issue of racism being a health crisis by allowing opportunities for people of color to become stakeholders in housing, jobs and education,” said Deborah Smith-Gilbert, president of IE National Council of Negro Women. “I look forward to working within our collaborative groups to make change for our families, our communities and ourselves.”

“While June 23, 2020 might’ve been a historic moment for San Bernardino County and community, we refuse to let up and allow this process to become merely ceremonial,” said Pastor Samuel Casey, executive director of Churches Organized for Prophetic Engagement (COPE). “We have an opportunity to create and make lasting change that will live beyond us. We must continue to be bold, courageous, and daring; to not only acknowledge that racial inequities exist, but also do the hard work of remediating the generational trauma that has historically plagued us far too long!”

“San Bernardino County declaring racism a public health crisis and establishing an Equity Group is a step in the right direction,” said Willie Ellison, board member with the Southern California Black Chamber of Commerce and CEO of Sapphire Marketing, Inc. “The group includes a number of talented and serious individuals, so I expect nothing but a positive outcome from their combined efforts. The fight for equality and equity is a process. It won’t be accomplished overnight, but I feel this group will be diligent and steadfast with the work that needs to be done. I am honored to be associated with such an amazing group of people.”

“San Bernardino County’s resolution declaring racism a public health crisis was a bold reflection of a reality that has been too long ignored,” said Reggie Webb, chairman of the Cooperative Economic Empowerment Movement (CEEM) and representative of the Westside Action Group (WAG). “Generations of decisions adversely affecting underrepresented minorities have degraded both their quality of life and upward mobility while at the same time increasing success rates for the majority population. The Equity Element Group, of which I am a proud member, is tasked to offer actionable recommendations that reverse the effects of racism while uplifting all citizens of the County.”

“Our History + Our Culture = Our Values,” said George Lamb, president and CEO of Faith Advisory Council for Community Transformation (FACCT). “Values × Behavior produces Lifestyle. We have to re-engineer our Culture. The TRUST!”

“San Bernardino County’s board resolution is an important first step towards achieving the vision of equity, which requires honesty in how systems have affected vulnerable communities and the courage to dismantle and rebuild these systems,” said Phyllis K. Morris-Green, chair of Reimagining Our Communities (ROC).  “Enacting the vision will bring inclusivity and healing as we seek to create a new equitable future for our County residents.”

“I applaud the County of San Bernardino for being the first in the state to declare racism a public health crisis,” said Tremaine Mitchell of Youth Action Project. “The creation of the Equity Group demonstrates the County’s commitment to translating that declaration into actions that will help create communities where all can thrive.”

“This is an amazing opportunity that we as the community can help to shape the future of how racism is addressed, and I’m 100% invested in this process,” said Terrance Stone, CEO of Young Visionaries Youth Leadership Academy.

The group began initial meetings several months ago and discussed various topics such as achieving equity in health, homeownership, jobs and economic development, education, public safety, infrastructure, and civic engagement.

The Equity Element Group recently developed a request for proposal to identify an equity consultant to lead this important work. The equity consultant will work with the County Administrative team, the Equity Element Group, and county, city and community stakeholders to reach the objectives identified in the resolution.

In 2011, the Board of Supervisors and San Bernardino Council of Governments adopted the Countywide Vision, a roadmap for the future of the county with an emphasis on 10 elements, including public safety, education, jobs and the economy, wellness and housing. The Countywide Vision recognizes that each of these elements is interrelated and interdependent.

Element groups working to achieve the Countywide Vision have produced tangible results for the county community. They include the Vision2Read literacy campaign; the Vision2BActive wellness campaign; the Vision4Safety public safety campaign; and the Vision2Succeed campaign created by the jobs and economy element group.

Board adopts 2021-22 County budget with eye toward economic recovery

The Board of Supervisors adopted the 2021-22 County budget on Tuesday, which invests in San Bernardino County’s communities, residents and businesses to help them recover from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, the $7.6 billion budget recognizes the relative stability of County revenues and plans to keep significant resources available to address any possible future economic challenges.  The Board has maintained its long-standing fiscally prudent approach by setting aside an additional $41 million towards its General Purpose Reserve and is projecting to end 2021-22 with a $19 million General Fund operating surplus.

“We are being fiscally responsible with your tax dollars and we are listening to your priorities,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “We are putting resources in the right direction and this budget gives us the opportunity to move this county forward.”

While not included in the initial recommended budget, the Board also took action today to adopt a plan for the use of $423.5 million of federal funding from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA).  This significant resource will help the County continue to respond to the pandemic, help with economic recovery and infrastructure and improve government operations.

“The 2021-22 Recommended Budget represents a significant step toward recovery from the pandemic,” Chief Executive Officer Leonard X. Hernandez wrote in a letter to the Board. “Through the investment of available financing sources, this budget will both strengthen the County’s fiscal stability while expanding and enhancing the County’s ability to provide high-quality services to our residents and investors.”

To address community concerns, the Board allocated $10.4 million over the next several years to help combat illegal marijuana cultivation, short-term rental oversight, illegal dumping and graffiti abatement, snow play nuisance abatement, illegal vending in problem areas and illegal trucking activities.

“This budget reflects your commitment to public safety in the county,” said San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon, citing the issue of illegal marijuana cultivation in the county.

The post-pandemic desire for outdoor activities prompted an additional $5 million investment in the County’s Regional Parks with capital improvements planned at Glen Helen, Yucaipa, Prado, Guasti, and Mojave Narrows regional parks.

Fighting homelessness remains a priority in the County budget. There is a renewed focus and staffing added to the Homeless Strategic Plan, which aligns the county’s homeless population with health and housing services provided by the County and its partners.

In addition, technological upgrades are due for County systems and online services that help residents and businesses receive a necessary and evolving level of service that is timely and convenient and helps the County generate revenue to continue serving the public’s needs.

County honors employees for excellence in public service

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors recognized 40 County employees on May 13, during the Public Service Recognition Award for Excellence ceremony at the San Bernardino County Government Center. The annual event recognizes the tireless dedication of public servants.

One employee from each County department is selected for an Award for Excellence based on outstanding service to the county and its citizens. This year marked the 32nd year the County has participated in this national Public Service Recognition Week event.  This year was particularly impactful as the County focused in on critical needs of the community that arose from the global pandemic.

“We are grateful to our County employees for their dedication to the residents of San Bernardino County,” said Chairman Curt Hagman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. “The Award for Excellence highlights a commitment to public service that is demonstrated each day by our honorees.”

Chief Executive Officer Leonard X. Hernandez praised the employees’ service.

“While all our employees work hard every day, these 40 individuals have distinguished themselves out of the 22,000 County employee family,” said Hernandez. “They are committed to bringing the Countywide Vision to life and meeting the needs of our two million residents and have responded to a call to service during these unprecedented times. We are thankful for their service and innovation.”

Frontline Healthcare Workers are First to Receive Pfizer Vaccine

County launches webpage for up-to-date vaccine information

Frontline healthcare workers at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center today became the first people in the Inland Empire to be administered the first of two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer-BioNTech. This morning, San Bernardino County received its first shipment of the vaccines, which are anticipated to be disbursed to 19 hospitals within the county by the end of the day.

Pfizer is shipping three million doses in this first wave, of which California is initially receiving 327,000 doses; 15,600 have arrived in San Bernardino County. Subsequent shipments of the vaccine are expected to continue arriving on a weekly basis, and a second vaccine from Moderna is only days away from FDA approval.

The County has established the SB County Vaccination Task Force and produced a COVID-19 Standard Operating Guide to ensure our ability to distribute the vaccine as efficiently and effectively as possible. The guide largely follows guidelines established by the CDC, the California Department of Public Health and the County Department of Public Health.

San Bernardino County has launched a vaccine-specific information webpage that shares up-to-date information where we are in the different phases of the vaccine distribution, as well as critical FAQs and other resource links.

Because the initial batches of doses are being rationed, the vaccine is being initially administered to front-line healthcare personnel, followed by residents and staff of long-term care and skilled nursing facilities. First responders will also be among the first people in the county to receive the vaccine.

In Phase 2, distribution of the vaccine will be expanded to include K-12 teachers and staff, childcare workers, critical workers in essential and high-risk industries, residents with comorbidity/underlying conditions, staff and residents of group facilities, and older adults not included in Phase 1.  Phase 3 adds young adults, children and workers in industries and occupations not already included, and Phase 4 includes everyone not already inoculated.

“We have a plan in place, and we will move quickly to protect our most at-risk and vulnerable residents,” said Board of Supervisor Chairman Curt Hagman. “That includes making sure we handle and store the vaccine properly,” he added, noting that the Pfizer vaccine must be stored at -80 degree Celsius (-120 Fahrenheit), requiring special facilities and materials like dry ice (frozen CO2).

“We still face challenges from this virus, and will continue dealing with infections and illness for several weeks and even months. However, this is a crucial development that gives us hope for the future, and we will work tirelessly to ensure every county resident has a chance to get vaccinated at the earliest possible date,” Hagman said.

Share the Gift of Safety this Season

We hate saying it as much as you hate hearing it: but despite the inconvenience and fatigue, there is no skirting around the fact that every County resident must do all we can to avoid catching, and spreading, COVID-19 this holiday season.

We understand your frustration. All of us truly want to spend the holidays with family and friends. Unfortunately, there is no “fake news” in the headlines – we’re in the middle of a very alarming spike in COVID-19 cases, which county data predominantly attributes to social gatherings.

Our hospital numbers tell the real story…and it’s a distressing one.

San Bernardino County hospitals are running out of beds overall and have hit capacity in their intensive care units (ICUs). Put another way, at the current time, our hospitals have no more ICU beds available. And while we previously might have gained assistance from nearby counties, today their ICU situation is as difficult as ours. The current shortage of hospital beds not only affects COVID-19 patients, but others who require serious medical attention.

Intensifying our challenge is the fact that our medical personnel have been working exhaustive hours and they are nearing their breaking points. While their dedication is inspiring, their abilities are not limitless.

Unfortunately, there is little any of us can do to help hospital staff and their patients – but what we can do is take every precaution possible to ensure we stay healthy and avoid spreading the virus to others. So please avoid gatherings with those outside your immediate family. Maintain social distancing. Wear a mask whenever you’re in close proximity to others. And wash your hands thoroughly and regularly.

We safe and be well this holiday season. Thank you.

Residents Encouraged to Share “Gift of Safety” Videos on Personal Social Pages

The County has produced two 30-second videos that feature different faces of our community and healthcare system reminding us of the importance of staying vigilant this holiday season. Even though vaccines are being rolled out, we still have to do what it takes to not overwhelm our hospital system.

Each of the videos can be found on YouTube and the healthcare professionals in the County of San Bernardino are asking residents to share the videos on their own personal social media pages. Each video features both English and Spanish speakers, with captions as designated.

La enfermera de UCI Sonya Harrell es la primera trabajadora sanitaria de primera línea en el condado de San Bernardino a recibir la vacuna COVID-19; administrada por Marcia Williams. Ambos trabajan en Arrowhead Regional Medical Center.

Los trabajadores sanitarios de primera línea son los primeros en recibir la vacuna Pfizer

El condado lanza una página web para obtener información actualizada sobre vacunas

Los trabajadores sanitarios de primera línea de Arrowhead Regional Medical Center fueron hoy las primeras personas en el Inland Empire que se administraron la primera de las dos dosis de la vacuna COVID-19 de Pfizer-BioNTech. Esta mañana, el condado de San Bernardino recibió su primer envío de las vacunas, que se esperan ser desembolsados a 19 hospitales dentro del condado al final del día.

Pfizer está enviando tres millones de dosis en esta primera ola, de los cuales California está recibiendo inicialmente 327.000 dosis; 15.600 han llegado al condado de San Bernardino. Se espera que los envíos posteriores de la vacuna continúen llegando semanalmente, y una segunda vacuna de Moderna está a solo unos días de la aprobación de la FDA.

El Condado ha establecido el Grupo de Trabajo de Vacunación del Condado de SB y ha producido una Guía Operativa Estándar COVID-19 para asegurar nuestra capacidad de distribuir la vacuna de la manera más eficiente y efectiva posible. La guía sigue en gran medida las pautas establecidas por los CDC, el Departamento de Salud Pública de California y el Departamento de Salud Pública del Condado.

El Condado de San Bernardino ha lanzado una página web de información específica de la vacuna vaccine-specific information webpage que comparte información actualizada donde estamos en las diferentes fases de la distribución de la vacuna, así como preguntas frecuentes críticas y otros enlaces de recursos.

Debido a que se están racionando los lotes iniciales de dosis, la vacuna se está administrando inicialmente al personal de atención médica de primera línea, seguido por los residentes y el personal de atención a largo plazo y centros de enfermería especializada. Los primeros respondedores también estarán entre las primeras personas en el condado en recibir la vacuna.

En la fase 2, la distribución de la vacuna se ampliará para incluir a maestros y personal de K-12, trabajadores de cuidado infantil, trabajadores críticos en industrias esenciales y de alto riesgo, residentes con comorbilidad/condiciones subyacentes, personal y residentes de instalaciones grupales, y adultos mayores no incluidos en la fase 1. La fase 3 añade adultos jóvenes, niños y trabajadores en industrias y ocupaciones que no están incluidas, y la fase 4 incluye a todos los que no han sido inoculados.

“Tenemos un plan en lugar, y nos moveremos rápidamente para proteger a nuestros residentes más vulnerables y en riesgo”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Eso incluye asegurarnos de que manejemos y almacenemos la vacuna correctamente”, agregó, señalando que la vacuna Pfizer debe almacenarse a -80 grados Celsius (-120 Fahrenheit), lo que requiere instalaciones y materiales especiales como hielo seco (CO2 congelado).

“Todavía enfrentamos desafíos de este virus, y continuaremos lidiando con infecciones y enfermedades durante varias semanas e incluso meses. Sin embargo, este es un desarrollo crucial que nos da esperanza para el futuro, y trabajaremos incansablemente para asegurar que todos los residentes del condado tienen la oportunidad de vacunarse lo antes posible”, dijo Hagman.

Comparta el Regalo de Seguridad esta temporada
Odiemos decirlo tanto como odias escucharlo: pero a pesar de las molestias y la fatiga, no hay otro modo de decirlo menos que cada residente del condado debe hacer todo lo posible para evitar para evitar que usted contraiga COVID-19 y no contagie a otras personas esta temporada de vacaciones.

Entendemos su frustración. Todos nosotros realmente queremos pasar las vacaciones con la familia y amigos. Desafortunadamente, no hay “noticias falsas” en los titulares: estamos en medio de un pico muy alarmante en los casos COVID-19, que los datos del condado atribuyen predominantemente a las reuniones sociales.

Los números de nuestros hospitales cuentan la historia real… y es una historia angustiosa.

Los hospitales del condado de San Bernardino se están quedando sin camas en general y han alcanzado la capacidad en sus Unidades de Cuidados Intensivos (UCIs). Dicho de otra manera, en la actualidad, nuestros hospitales no tienen más camas de UCI disponibles. Y aunque anteriormente podríamos haber obtenido ayuda de los condados cercanos, hoy su situación en la UCI es tan difícil como la nuestra. La actual escasez de camas de hospital no solo afecta a los pacientes con COVID-19, sino a otros que requieren atención médica seria.

Intensificando nuestro desafío es el hecho de que nuestro personal médico ha estado trabajando horas exhaustivas y están acercándose a sus puntos de quiebre. Aunque su dedicación es inspiradora, sus habilidades no son ilimitadas.

Desafortunadamente, hay poco que cualquiera de nosotros puede hacer para ayudar al personal del hospital y a sus pacientes, pero lo que podemos hacer es tomar todas las precauciones posibles para garantizar que nos mantengamos saludables y evitar la propagación del virus a otros. Así que por favor evite las reuniones con los que están fuera de su familia inmediata. Mantener el distanciamiento social. Use una máscara siempre que esté cerca de los demás. Y lávese bien las manos frecuentemente.

Mantengase a salvo y cuídese esta temporada de vacaciones. Gracias.

Se anima a los residentes a compartir videos de “Regalo de seguridad” en las páginas sociales personales

El Condado ha producido dos videos de 30 segundos que presentan diferentes caras de nuestra comunidad y sistema de salud que nos recuerdan la importancia de permanecer vigilantes esta temporada navideña. A pesar de que se están aplicando vacunas, todavía tenemos que hacer lo que sea necesario para no abrumar nuestro sistema hospitalario.

Cada uno de los videos se puede encontrar en YouTube y los profesionales de la salud en el Condado de San Bernardino están pidiendole a los residentes que compartan los videos en sus propias páginas personales de redes sociales. Cada vídeo cuenta con hablantes de inglés y español, con subtítulos designados.

Update on Short-Term Rentals

The State has now added short-term lodging to its language regarding hotels under the new regional stay-at-home order. The language states hotels and short-term lodging operators “cannot accept or honor out-of-state reservations for non-essential travel, unless the reservation is for at least the minimum time period required for quarantine and the persons identified in the reservation will quarantine in the hotel or lodging entity until after that time period has expired.” It also limits in-state reservations to essential purposes.

Here is a link to the information from the State: https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs/#regional-stay-home-order

As to enforcement of the State’s orders, the County will continue to educate and engage with businesses and organizations on a cooperative basis on safe practices and current health orders, and respond to complaints about violations as appropriate on a case-by-case basis.

If you have questions about the State’s order with regard to short-term rentals, please contact the State of California or your state representative. The State’s COVID-19 website is https://covid19.ca.gov/.
