Social Media

The World Health Organization’s Declaration that the spread of the 2019 Novel coronavirus, now referred to as COVID-19, has reached pandemic status prompted federal, state and regional public health organizations to implement orders and guidelines to limit the spread of the disease.

By order of Dr. Cameron Kaiser, Public Health Officer, Riverside University Health Systems-Public Health, all events with expected attendance above 250 individuals are canceled within Riverside County starting March 12, 2020 until April 30, 2020, regardless of venue.

In addition to the order, RUHS Public Health has published guidance for gatherings below 250 attendees to self-assess events.  This guidance includes the unique risk COVID-19 can pose to the elderly and infirm.  The full order of the Riverside County Public Health Officer, and guidance for community events, are located on the City’s webpage
