Board selects Leonard X. Hernandez as Chief Executive Officer

Leonard X. Hernandez

County Chief Operating Officer Leonard X. Hernandez, who began his career with San Bernardino County 20 years ago as a County Library public service employee, on Tuesday was appointed by the Board of Supervisors to serve as the county’s next Chief Executive Officer effective Oct. 10.

“I am humbled by the confidence the Board of Supervisors has placed in me and grateful for the opportunity to lead this great County organization, which has been my professional home for so many years,” Hernandez said.

“Under the leadership and guidance of the Board of Supervisors, the County team has built a culture of innovation, efficiency, and public service,” Hernandez said. “My overarching goal is to expand and nurture that culture within each of our worksites, within every service we provide, and within every County employee.”

“We are excited to welcome Leonard Hernandez as San Bernardino County’s new CEO,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “COVID-19 has presented many unique challenges within our community, and Leonard’s extensive experience within the County and his integral role on the executive leadership team have strongly positioned him to lead the County during this unique time. I look forward to working with him in solving these challenges and know that his talents, leadership, and dedication to seeing the County thrive will serve him well as CEO.”

Hernandez will succeed Gary McBride, who has served as CEO for nearly three years and will remain with the County as Strategic Projects Director under a contract extension approved by the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.

“I have known Leonard since 2006, when he was the manager of the Fontana Branch Library,” said Board of Supervisors Vice Chair Josie Gonzales. “Throughout the years, I have watched him grow as a leader and I have seen his commitment to serving the community.  As a Supervisor for the past 16 years, I know that there is no decision more important than the selection of the CEO.  I have full confidence in Leonard and I have no doubt that he will help guide our County to new heights in the years to come.”

“Leonard first impressed me with his leadership and problem-solving skills when he was placed in charge of the Lewis Library in Fontana while I was on the City Council,” Supervisor Janice Rutherford said. “Since then, he’s continued to demonstrate his leadership abilities, commitment to excellence in public service, and his dedication to ethics, and I look forward to working with him to address the challenges facing our county.”

“I appreciate Leonard’s willingness to accept the role of CEO and continue the leadership that has been established,” said Supervisor Robert Lovingood. “His experience and knowledge of the County is foundational to our ongoing success and I look forward to working with him in this capacity. As a County, we have faced unprecedented challenges and I am confident that these proactive leadership transitions prepare us well for what is ahead. I want to thank Gary for his leadership and continued commitment to help the County strategically navigate the complexities that this health crisis has brought.”

“I look forward to working with Leonard to implement the vision of our Board of Supervisors,” said Supervisor Dawn Rowe. “He is a hard-working leader with a keen understanding of the inner-workings of our county government. I’m confident that he will continue the great progress made by his predecessor, Gary McBride.”

After launching his career in San Bernardino County, Hernandez gained experience and honed his management skills at the City of Riverside as the Director of Libraries before returning to San Bernardino County in 2010 as County Librarian.

In 2014, while still serving as County Librarian, Hernandez served as interim Museum Director. In 2015, Hernandez was promoted to the position of Deputy Executive Officer over the Community Services Group, which includes the County Library and Museum systems, Registrar of Voters, Regional Parks, County Airports, and Agriculture/Weights and Measures.

In 2016 Hernandez became the Interim County Chief Operating Officer and then in 2017, Hernandez was officially appointed to the position of County Chief Operating Officer. In that role, Hernandez has coordinated the County’s multi-departmental response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Under the leadership of the Board of Supervisors the County’s COVID Task Force has led the State in its response to the pandemic and service to the public.

Hernandez, a resident of San Bernardino County, has a bachelor’s degree in history from California State University Fullerton and a master’s degree in library and information science from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.


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.

Board adopts resolution declaring racism a public health crisis

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution on Tuesday declaring racism a public health crisis becoming the first county in California to do so.

The Board also directed County staff to form a new Equity Element Group of the Countywide Vision project to promote and increase equity in San Bernardino County. Once formed, the Equity Element Group would be comprised of community members and experts in healthcare, education, economic development, law and justice, and other fields to create a path toward promoting and increasing equity within the county.

The issue of racism as a public health crisis came to the forefront following the global response to the May 25, 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and the impact of COVID-19 on the Black community and discussions with local community advocates.

The resolution states that racism results in disparities in family stability, health and mental wellness, education, employment, economic development, public safety, criminal justice and housing.

Statistics show:

-The infant mortality rate within San Bernardino County’s Black population is more than double the rate for the County as a whole.

-Black people account for less than 9 percent of the County’s population but almost 19 percent of County jail bookings and 38 percent of the bookings into County juvenile detention facilities;
More than 21 percent of the County’s homeless population is Black.

-The Black homeownership rate in San Bernardino County is less than 43 percent but stands at 60 percent for the County as a whole.

-In San Bernardino County, only 17 percent of Black students compared to more than 31 percent of all students are proficient in math and less than 35 percent of Black students compared to
almost 45 percent of all students are proficient in English/Language Arts.

-The college and career readiness rate is 44 percent for all students but is only 30 percent for Black students; Meanwhile, suspension and expulsion rates for Black students
are more than twice the respective rates for all students.

The County will actively participate in the dismantling of racism by:

-Collaborating with the County’s law and justice agencies and the community to ensure public confidence that public safety is administered equitably by ensuring that meaningful discussions
are conducted by the Equity Element Group on identifying mechanisms for researching and addressing public concerns related to law enforcement performance within San Bernardino

-Promoting equity through policies to be considered by the Board of Supervisors and enhancing meaningful, thoughtful, and data-driven education efforts aimed at understanding, addressing, and dismantling racism, and how racism affects public health, family stability, early education, economic development, public safety, and the delivery of human services.

-Identifying specific activities to enhance diversity within the County Government workforce.

-Advocating through the California State Association of Counties and the National Association of Counties for relevant policies that improve health outcomes in communities of color, and
supporting local, regional, state, and federal initiatives that advance efforts to dismantle systemic racism.

-Building and strengthening alliances with other organizations that are confronting racism, and encouraging other agencies to recognize racism as a crisis, including considering County
membership in the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE), which is a national network of local government agencies working to achieve racial equity and advance opportunities for all.

-Supporting community efforts to amplify issues of racism and engaging actively and authentically with communities of color throughout our County.

-Studying and evaluating existing County policies and practices through a lens of racial equity to promote and support policies that prioritize health in an equitable way, especially for people of color, by mitigating exposure to adverse childhood experiences.

-Encouraging each of the twenty-four incorporated cities and towns within San Bernardino County to also adopt resolutions affirming that racism is a public health crisis that results in disparities.

Board directs staff to draft resolution declaring racism a public health crisis, form group focused on equity

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors directed County staff to draft a resolution declaring racism a public health crisis and form a group focused on equity.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously directed County staff to draft a resolution declaring racism a public health crisis and to form a new element group of the Countywide Vision project to promote and increase equity in San Bernardino County.

Once formed, the Equity Element Group would be comprised of community members and experts in healthcare, education, economic development, law and justice, and other fields to create a path toward promoting and increasing equity within the county.

“This is a beginning platform to start these dialogues and work together,” said Board Chairman Curt Hagman. “I am excited to work with our community to address these issues going forward.”

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

The issue of racism as a public health crisis came to the forefront following the global response to the May 25, 2020 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and the impact of COVID-19 on the Black community.

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.

County closing at 3 p.m.; Supervisors speak out on current events

San Bernardino County offices will close at 3 p.m. today so local law enforcement can focus on any public safety issues that may arise in the community given the unrest that has taken place locally and throughout the country.

Although there is not a countywide curfew, several cities in the county have enacted their own curfew and residents are urged to check with their own cities to determine if there are curfews.

In light of the extraordinary events of the last several days, members of the Board of Supervisors shared their thoughts and sentiments and called for peace and consideration of lives, livelihoods and property.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman, Fourth District

“All of us within the County of San Bernardino are experiencing a mix of emotions as we come out of a weekend that saw both the best and worst of our citizenry. Our country is hurting right now. On one hand, we are deeply disturbed by the senseless killing of George Floyd and we can understand and support the message from peaceful assemblies across the county. But this weekend also saw people who took advantage of lawful protests to initiate terrible, senseless violence and destruction not only here in San Bernardino, but nationwide.

“We can’t adequately express our condolences for all of the pain and loss so many are experiencing. We believe in the right to peacefully assemble and we recognize that many important advances in our country have been made over the years through lawful protest.

“Amongst the sadness, anger, and violence, I have also seen the good. Community members trying to clean up the destruction, gather donations, and offer places of refuge. Officers trying to bridge the gap between them and their communities, and government officials working with community leaders to come up with solutions.

“We have faith in the leadership of Sheriff John McMahon, a longtime resident of the County who has been elected to his position since 2014, as well as the many city police departments in the county. We know that they will be on hand at these events to protect our citizens’ First Amendment rights and to ensure our residents can safely assemble, speak out, and grieve together.

“We are grateful for the sacrifice and efforts of all those who work to pursue justice, equality and opportunity for all Americans and thank residents who continue to reach out, speak up, and take part in worthy causes. I pray for unity amongst our communities and those affected by this tragedy.”

Board of Supervisors Vice Chair Josie Gonzales, Fifth District

“As emotional, and at times disturbing as this weekend’s events have been, I choose to see this as an opportunity for us to come together to truly address the systemic racism that has disadvantaged a specific segment of our American family. I do not condone the violence and the looting that has hurt many of our businesses, especially our small businesses that already have been crippled by COVID-19. But the outcry we hear is not just outrage over the killing of Mr. George Floyd. It is about Ahmaud Arbrey, Eric Garner, Breonna Taylor, Botham Jean, and too many other African American men, women, and children who have died violently and unnecessarily as the result of an economic structure that once saw African Americans as property and has yet to fully see them in an equal, humane light.

“Tomorrow, leaders of our community will come to the County’s Government Center to ask us to listen, to begin the dialogue, and to initiate change right here in San Bernardino County. This will be an opportunity to have ongoing conversations about the real issues African Americans face and how we can work together to erase inequities and disparities that impact their lives. I look forward to being part of the discussion.”

Supervisor Janice Rutherford, Second District

“I am heartbroken for our nation. I ache for my friends, neighbors and family who have been touched by racism, hatred, ignorance. I ache for those law enforcement officers who genuinely have hearts of service and are trying to protect our community from looters. I ache for the centuries and decades of oppression, mistrust, and miscommunication that have led us to this point.

“I hope that out of the ashes of this anger, we are able to engage in more honest conversations, to truly listen, and to find actions we can take together that allow everyone to both feel and be equal before the law and in the eyes of each other.”

Supervisor Robert Lovingood, First District

“I am disheartened by the violence unfolding in cities across our nation that is not reflective of the purpose and reason the many protestors have assembled in unity to voice their concerns and unrest.

“The criminal element of looting and violence is not welcomed. It causes everyone to suffer and brings nothing good for our communities and families. I stand with our community and faith-based leaders in a call for unity as we hear the cries of many and stand together against the violence.”

Supervisor Dawn Rowe, Third District

“I encourage residents of our county to exercise their freedom of speech and right to assemble peacefully. However, looters and rioters who use these protests as a distraction while they destroy our local businesses, many of which are owned by immigrants and people of color, will be arrested and prosecuted.

“I support bringing attention to the unnecessary death of George Floyd, but not at the expense of hard-working, small business owners.”

Face coverings now optional, but still encouraged

Face coverings are no longer required – but still strongly recommended – in San Bernardino County as the result of new health order requested by the Board of Supervisors.

The new order repeals the April 23 omnibus health order that required face coverings as well as social distancing at essential businesses, and banned gatherings and short-term rentals.

Although no longer regulated by a county health order, gatherings and short-term rentals are still prohibited and social distancing at essential businesses are still required under the state’s “stay-at-home” order.

“The County strongly urges everyone to continue wearing face coverings in public to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and businesses may still require face coverings for customers and employees,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “But repealing the local health orders and deferring to the less-restrictive state orders will allow the County to reopen businesses more quickly as the governor continues to relax standards.”

Many types of businesses were allowed to reopen today under certain conditions. The Board of Supervisors on Thursday adopted a Readiness and Reopening Plan and made plans to seek the governor’s consent to open many other types of businesses next week. The board plans to discuss additional details on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. That meeting can be viewed on the CountyDirect Broadcast Network at

Ahora las cubiertas de cara son opcionales, pero aún se recomiendan

Las cubiertas faciales ya no son requeridas, pero todavía se recomiendan con fuerza, en el condado de San Bernardino como resultado de una nueva orden de salud solicitada por la Junta de Supervisores.

La nueva orden (new order) deroga la orden de salud general del 23 de abril que requería coberturas faciales, así como distanciamiento social en negocios esenciales, y reuniones prohibidas y alquileres a corto plazo.

Aunque ya no están regulados por una orden de salud del condado, las reuniones y los alquileres a corto plazo siguen estando prohibidos y el distanciamiento social en los negocios esenciales todavía se requiere bajo la orden de “quedarse en casa” del estado.

El Condado urge enérgicamente a todos a seguir usando cubiertas faciales en público para frenar la propagación del virus COVID-19, y los negocios todavía pueden requerir coberturas faciales para clientes y empleados”, dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Pero derogar las órdenes de salud locales y aplazar las órdenes estatales menos restrictivas permitirá al Condado reabrir los negocios más rápidamente a medida que el gobernador continúe relajando los estándares”.

Muchos tipos de negocios se han permitido reabrir hoy bajo ciertas condiciones.  La Junta de Supervisores adoptó el jueves un Plan de Preparación y Reapertura (Readiness and Reopening Plan) e hizo planes para buscar el consentimiento del gobernador para abrir muchos otros tipos de negocios la próxima semana. La junta tiene previsto discutir detalles adicionales el martes por la mañana a las 9 a.m. Esa reunión se puede ver en la difusión directa del condado en

COVID-19 crisis endures, but County plans for recovery

The peak of the COVID-19 crisis locally and nationally has not yet arrived, but County Government has begun planning for a multi-faceted recovery by creating a San Bernardino County COVID-19 Recovery Coalition led by Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman that will include several government, private-sector and community partners from throughout the county.

“The impacts of this pandemic are already deep and far-reaching in terms of our local economy, government resources, and the basic structure of our society,” Hagman said. “The sooner we start talking about what recovery and our post-COVID-19 county looks like, even while coping with the crisis itself, the stronger and more enduring our recovery will be.”

The coalition includes the leadership of the county’s Economic Development and Workforce Development departments and the Community Development and Housing Agency. It will eventually encompass public- and private-sector partners in the following areas:

  • Transportation/Logistics
  • Healthcare
  • The Faith Community
  • Retail
  • Manufacturing
  • Government
  • Education
  • Hospitality
  • Tourism

A process for selecting members of the coalition will be announced at a future date.

“The focus of the coalition will be to begin a dialogue about recovery efforts and best practices toward dealing with the current COVID-19 crisis and moving our county towards recovery,” Hagman said.

Hagman cautioned that talking about recovery now is not a signal to ease off on efforts to control the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.

“We have not yet seen the worst,” Hagman said. “We must still stay at home when we can and take serious precautions when we have to go out by covering our faces as needed, washing our hands often, and maintaining social distancing. Backing off now will cause more people to become infected, more people to get gravely ill, and strain our healthcare system beyond capacity.”

“We will emerge from this crisis by working together,” Hagman said. “The San Bernardino County COVID-19 Recovery Coalition will help ensure that we emerge stronger, smarter, and ready to build our future.”

A variety of designated County departments and agencies have been working together since Jan. 25 to protect the community from the COVID-19 pandemic.

La crisis de COVID-19 permanece, pero el Condado planea recuperarse

El nivel más alto de la crisis del COVID-19  local y nacional aún no ha llegado, pero el gobierno del condado ha comenzado a planear una recuperación multifacética creando una Coalición de recuperación de la COVID-19 del condado de San Bernardino, dirigida por el presidente de la Junta de supervisores, Curt Hagman, que incluirá a varios socios del gobierno, del sector privado y de la comunidad de todo el condado.

“Los impactos de esta pandemia ya son profundos y de gran alcance en términos de nuestra economía local, recursos del gobierno y la estructura básica de nuestra sociedad”, dijo Hagman. “Cuanto antes empecemos a hablar de cómo se ve la recuperación y nuestro condado después de-COVID-19, incluso mientras afrontamos la crisis, más fuerte y más duradera será nuestra recuperación”.

La coalición incluye el liderazgo de los departamentos de Desarrollo Económico y Desarrollo de la Fuerza Laboral del condado y la Agencia De Desarrollo Comunitario y Vivienda. Con el tiempo, abarcará a los socios del sector público y privado en las siguientes áreas:

  • Transporte/Logística
    • Asistencia médica
    • La Comunidad de la Fe
    • Venta al por menor
    • Industrial
    • Gobierno
    • Educación
    • Hospitalidad
    • Turismo

Un proceso para seleccionar a los miembros de la coalición se anunciará en una fecha futura.

“El objetivo de la coalición será iniciar un diálogo sobre los esfuerzos de recuperación y las mejores prácticas para enfrentar la actual crisis del COVID-19 y mover nuestro condado hacia la recuperación”, dijo Hagman.

Hagman advirtió que hablar ahora sobre la recuperación no es una señal para aliviar los esfuerzos para controlar la propagación del virus que causa COVID-19.

“Todavía no hemos visto lo peor”, dijo Hagman. “debemos permanecer en casa cuando podamos y tomar precauciones serias cuando tengamos que salir cubriendo nuestras caras según sea necesario, lavándonos las manos a menudo y manteniendo el distanciamiento social. Retroceder ahora hará que más personas se infecten, más personas se enfermen gravemente y tensar nuestro sistema de la asistencia médica más allá de la capacidad.”

“Saldremos de esta crisis trabajando juntos”, dijo Hagman. “La Coalición de Recuperación COVID-19 del Condado de San Bernardino ayudará a asegurar que salgamos más fuertes, inteligentes y listos para construir nuestro futuro”.

Una variedad de departamentos y agencias designados del Condado han estado trabajando juntos desde el 25 de enero para proteger a la comunidad de la pandemia COVID-19.

County launches COVID-19 “Stay Home, Stay Safe” billboard campaign

San Bernardino County has launched a series of billboard advertisements promoting the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign to help combat the spread of COVID-19. The billboards are located next to major freeways and will be viewable to commuters in San Bernardino County.

“The ‘Stay Home, Stay Safe’ billboard campaign is a reminder to residents that staying home will help slow the spread of the virus,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman Curt Hagman. “Staying home as much as possible while only participating in essential activities, such as critical work functions, or shopping for necessities, has been our number one offense in fighting COVID-19. Our community is safer when we all do our part to take additional precautions and follow the latest health safety guidelines.”

The billboard advertisement features the County’s COVID-19 resources webpage and also highlights the slogan, “We’ll get through this together!”

The billboard placements were donated by General Outdoor Advertising. The billboards are located in Rancho Cucamonga on the I-15 freeway between 4th Street and Foothill, in Fontana on the I-10 freeway between Etiwanda Avenue and Cherry Avenue, and San Bernardino on the 215 freeway south of the 2nd/5th Street exit.

The billboards are just one of the many communication tools being used by the County to help better inform residents of the latest updates regarding the COVID-19 crisis. Various appropriate County departments and agencies have been working together to protect the community, with daily guidelines and new information shared to the public.For information about the coronavirus crisis, visit the County’s coronavirus website at 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


El Condado lanza campaña en cartelera COVID-19 “Quedarse en Casa, Mantenerse a Salvo”

El Condado de San Bernardino ha lanzado una serie de anuncios publicitarios que promueven la campaña “Stay Home, Stay Safe” (Quedarse en Casa, Mantenerse a Salvo) para ayudar a combatir la propagación de COVID-19. Las carteleras publicitarias se encuentran junto a las autopistas principales y serán visibles para los viajeros en el Condado de San Bernardino.

“La campaña publicitaria “Stay Home, Stay Safe” (Quedarse en Casa, Mantenerse a Salvo”) es un recordatorio para los residentes de que quedarse en casa ayudará a frenar la propagación del virus,” dijo el Presidente de la Junta de Supervisores, Curt Hagman. “Permanecer en casa tanto como sea posible mientras solo participamos en actividades esenciales, como funciones críticas de trabajo, o comprar artículos de primera necesidad, ha sido nuestra ofensa número uno en la lucha contra COVID-19. Nuestra comunidad es más segura cuando todos hacemos nuestra parte para tomar precauciones adicionales y seguir las últimas pautas de seguridad en la salud.”

El anuncio de la cartelera presenta la página web de recursos COVID-19 del Condado y también destaca el lema: “¡Lo superaremos juntos!”

Las colocaciones de las carteleras fueron donadas por General Outdoor Advertising. Las carteleras  publicitarias se encuentran en Rancho Cucamonga en la autopista I-15 entre 4th Street y Foothill, en Fontana en la autopista I-10 entre Etiwanda Avenue y Cherry Avenue, y en San Bernardino en la autopista 215 al sur de la salida 2nd/5th Street.

Las carteleras publicitarias son sólo una de las muchas herramientas de comunicación que está utilizando el Condado para ayudar a informar mejor a los residentes de las últimas actualizaciones con respecto a la crisis COVID-19. Varios departamentos y agencias apropiadas del Condado han estado trabajando juntos para proteger a la comunidad, con pautas diarias y nueva información compartida al público.
