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:

  • When will Recorder’s Office, San Bernardino reopen for filings. Thank you

  • Can we start having family gatherings.

  • Why aren’t San Bernardino County Sheriff’s or PD patrolling the parks to have people especially little kids be warned to not play at the play ground still? I saw people still gathering and bbqing yesterday, on Memorial Day and yet nothing was done as usual.

  • When will Gyms and health spa / nail / hair be open??

  • I am glad to hear we are moving forward with more places opening.
    I only have one complaint that being you my County Supervisors caving in about the facial covering. They should be mandatory not just highly suggested. Is it your need for votes putting us in danger? I am 73 years old and the number of 30/40 somethings are the biggest problem. I live in the Crestline and the number of visitors up here pay no attention to “suggested” rules, they are here to play, we need you to keep us safe and you have FAILED. I wear a mask whenever I am out and would hope others would be required to do the same. Because you let down on this very important rule now it is up to each store owner/manager to ask people coming in to comply. When it was your mandate you helped us all. If we are expendable at least be honest about it!

  • Can private schools now reopen?
