Join us live at 10 a.m. for an update on COVID-19

San Bernardino County residents are invited to join us live at 10 a.m. today to discuss our status on the state’s Tier system. The County learned we are unable to move from our current purple tier status to red.

The Livestream can be accessed on the County’s Facebook page or on our website here and will feature the Board of Supervisors and County Fire Chief Dan Munsey. They will break down what is keeping us from advancing to the red tier and what the County and its residents can do to keep COVID cases down and reopen more businesses.

  • Hey far are we from tier 2 and when will gyms reopen

    • Hi Joshua, in order to get into the next tier, we have to have 7 or less cases per 100,000 residents and a positivity rate of less than 8 percent for 14 days. Our numbers unfortunately have gone up in the last week or so, but we are hoping they begin to go down again. You can see our numbers on our dashboard under the CDPH Monitoring Tab at https://sbcovid19.com/. Once we get into the red tier, gyms can open indoors with modifications.

  • Why are the prison cases not being subtracted from our seven day average new case rate? This is another metric that state is monitoring.

  • Based on the fact the SBC has a number of prisons within it County, are the COVID 19 cases being excluded from the statistics since the inmates, and for the most part, the guards, are isolated and “self-quarantined? If they are not, than SBC has been given a severe discredit in the tier system.

    • Those cases are being excluded as it pertains to our positivity and case rate — the metrics that the state is monitoring.

    • In what world are the guards at all isolated? They
      clock off and have families. This is an obvious attempt to bolster better looking stats at the expense of the health and safety of those detained and incarcerated. They have rights. It’s shameful to conceal these numbers; these people count as residents and the staff that interact with them move about in the community.
