San Bernardino County Provides Business Owners and Managers With Steps to Take for a Safe Re-opening

With the limited re-opening of some Phase 2 businesses beginning Friday, May 8, San Bernardino County is looking to owners and managers of businesses and facilities to establish safe re-opening guidelines to address the following areas of concern.

  1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a site-specific protection plan. Every workforce is different, with unique characteristics and challenges. No one is in a better place to know how to conduct operations safely than the owner, managers and employees of an individual facility.
  2. Protect and support worker health and safety. Supply and require use of face coverings and personal protective equipment. Relocate break areas outdoors with physically distant seating.
  3. Ensure appropriate physical distancing. Ease into opening by limiting occupancy initially by 25% capacity in order to evaluate operational protocols. Use floor markings and manage traffic flow to ensure 6-foot distancing between individuals as much as possible. Avoid congregating.
  4. Ensure proper infection control. Follow strict cleaning and sanitation standards, appropriate for your place of work or business. Establish operational procedures to frequently clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces.
  5. Train all employees on new procedures. All workers need to understand your site-specific protection plan. Make sure employees know how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them.
  6. Communicate with the public. Post clear signage to communicate your new safety protocols to visitors, including the requirement to wear a face covering when indoors and interacting with workers or strangers.
  7. Offer transactions and services online and at curbside whenever feasible. Accommodate curbside pick-up to keep vulnerable populations safe. Continue to encourage takeout and delivery service.

According to the County, the bottom line is that if we want to keep our economy open, we all have to take responsibility in keeping one another safe. We are confident our businesses, employees and patrons can do what it takes to get through this together.

City Extends Facility Closures and Program Cancellations, Opens Low Risk Park Amenities

Chino Hills City Hall and the City Yard remain closed to the public through May 31 as employees continue to provide City services via telephone, online, and in some cases by appointment. Steps are being taken to prepare the facilities to open to the public with additional safety enhancements that will protect staff and visitors. 

The cancellation of classes, events, programs, building reservations, and gatherings will continue through July 5. Facilities that support those programs, including the Chino Hills Community Center and the McCoy Equestrian & Recreation Center will also be closed through July 5. 

The annual State of the City event will not be held, but the City is exploring options to share the information through different methods.  Summer swimming lessons are cancelled for the year. Other popular summer programs including Concerts and Movies in the Park, Summer Day Camp, and Mobile Recreation are cancelled through July 5. 

The Community Services Department is offering Virtual Recreation online with contests, activities, virtual tours, and more for all ages.  Visit www.chinohills.org/VirtualRecreation to learn more. City officials will monitor actions at the State level to determine if it will be possible to offer any of these events and programs in late July, August and September.  Closures will be modified to align with future actions taken at the State level.

As part of a gradual process to re-open some lower risk park amenities, tennis courts are now open with some “best practices” in place to reduce contact.  Tennis courts will be open with limited hours, 30 minutes before sunrise and 30 minutes after sunset, with no lighted play. Parking lots at most parks are also open with a few exceptions. Several parking lots remain closed to reduce the number of people at the location. Parking lots are closed at the Skate Park, Grand Avenue Park, English Springs Park, Vila Borba Park (Dog Park), a portion of Chino Hills Community Park, and Big League Dreams Sports Park / Fairfield Ranch Park.

Although Face Coverings Are No Longer Required, S.B. County Still Strongly Encourages Their Use 

Friday, May 8:  Face coverings are no longer required – but still strongly recommended – in San Bernardino County. 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 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 9:00 am.

STATE BEGINS GRADUAL MOVE TO STAGE 2, SOME BUSINESSES START TO RE-OPEN WITH MODIFICATIONS 

On Friday, May 8 businesses will start to re-open with modifications including some with curbside pickup:

  • Clothing Stores
  • Florists
  • Bookstores
  • Sporting Goods
  • Manufacturing
  • Warehouses

State provides guidelines for businesses.

S.B. COUNTY ANNOUNCES SOME BUSINESSES CAN START TO RE-OPEN 

The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors late Thursday, May 7 announced some businesses can start to re-open today. These include what Gov. Gavin Newsom has termed Phase 2 businesses.

Phase 1 has been essential businesses, which were never required to be closed. The early phase of Phase 2 starting today are “lower risk” workplaces, including but not limited to bookstores, jewelry stores, clothing and shoe stores, home and furnishing stores, sporting goods stores, antique stores, music stores, and florists. To start, reopening efforts should be phased in, starting first with curbside pickup until further notice.

Supply chains supporting the above businesses can also open under this early stage of Phase 2, specifically in the manufacturing and logistics sectors. All businesses will need to modify operations to reduce contact, ensure proper distancing, and ensure proper PPE and sanitation equipment for all employees, preferably with outdoor breakrooms and physically distant seating. When businesses eventually open their doors to patrons, a workplace should restrict entry to 25 percent capacity and slowly advance from there as health indicators are evaluated.

Workplaces that are not in Stage 1 or Stage 2 include those in the list below.  County and State officials are working with representatives of these sectors to identify reopening strategies.

  • Personal services such as nail salons, tattoo parlors, gyms and fitness studios
  • Hospitality services, such as bars and lounges
  • Entertainment venues, such as movie theaters, gaming facilities, and pro sports
  • Indoor museums, children’s museums and gallery spaces, zoos, and libraries
  • Community Centers, including public pools, playgrounds, and picnic areas
  • Religious services and cultural ceremonies
  • Nightclubs
  • Concert venues
  • Festivals
  • Theme parks

Protect Against Infection

The San Bernardino CountyDepartment of Public Health (DPH) is continuously working with the Centers forDisease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the California Department of PublicHealth (CDPH) to respond to reports of Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

A State and Local Health Order is in place that requires residents to stay at home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. If you must leave your home for an essential outing, wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth and keep at least 6 feet of distance from other people. 

Older adults and those with chronic medical conditions should take additional precautions to avoid getting sick with the COVID-19. 

These measures are challenging during this time, but they are necessary to help protect all of our communities.

Face Coverings

According to the CDC, cloth face coverings can be made from household items or made at home from common materials. Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

Cloth face coverings should—

  • fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
  • be secured with ties or ear loops
  • include multiple layers of fabric
  • allow for breathing without restriction
  • be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape

COVID-19 Message From Mayor Art Bennett

Your Drinking Water is Safe

There is much concern over the availability of bottled water. However, you should know that the water supply in Chino Hills is safe and meets all safe drinking water standards. Bottled water is not a necessity.

Urgent Request - Only Flush Toilet Paper! 

If you haven’t found toilet paper and are using substitutes like paper towels, paper napkins, etc. - they are not flushable and cause problems for sewer equipment.  Please use the trash can. The "flushable" wipes are not flushable. Toilet paper is the only thing you should flush....even facial tissue does not dissolve.

Urgent Request - Please Do Not Dump Unwanted Household Items at Closed Thrift Stores 

While you are staying home to do your part in stopping the spread of COVID-19, please remember to focus efforts on disinfecting surfaces rather than purging household items. Many local thrift stores are closed right now and not accepting donations. Dropping off items to a closed store can create a public health and code enforcement issue. Instead, visit serv.ca.gov for ways you can help out.

No Shortage of Food 

There is no shortage of food, however due to the way that people are shopping right now, the supply chain is behind the demand.   If everyone shops in the normal way that they would typically provide for their family, the grocery stores would be well stocked with what you need.  

The City is collecting information from local restaurants, grocery stores, and others that provide essential services and supplies to the community.  If your business is not listed on the appropriate list below and you would like to be included, or if you have changes to your business information, please update us by email.   

Support for Local Businesses

During this difficult time, local businesses who remain open providing essential services, such as food, need your support.

Governor’s Stay at Home Order

The Governor issued a Stay at Home Order on March 19, which means everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative/friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. If you go out, keep at least six feet of distance. 

What Does a Stay at Home Order Mean?

The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health is ordering all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence, except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors, critical government services, schools, childcare, and construction, including housing construction.  (Note - the Governor’s Executive Stay at Home Order was announced the evening of March 19, 2020.  Additional clarifications are being made by San Bernardino County as a result of the order.  A statewide order supercedes a County order.)

The state has posted useful information at covid19.ca.gov.

Public Health Guidance on Gatherings To Slow the Rate of Transmission

To protect public health and slow the rate of the transmission of COVID-19, the California Department of Public Health has provided the guidance that gatherings of any size as described below should be POSTPONED or CANCELLED across the state of California until further guidance is issued.  The California Department of Public Health finds the following: 

  • All gatherings should be postponed or canceled. This includes gatherings such as concerts, conferences, and professional, college, and school sporting events. 
  • Gyms, health clubs, and theaters should be closed. 
  • A “gathering” is any event or convening that brings together people in a single room or single space at the same time, such as an auditorium, stadium, arena, large conference room, meeting hall, cafeteria, or any other indoor or outdoor space. 

This guidance applies to all non-essential professional, social, and community gatherings regardless of their sponsor. Gatherings that do not meet the aforementioned criteria should only be conducted when they are essential—that is, if the activity is essential and could not be postponed or achieved without gathering, meaning that some other means of communication could not be used to conduct the essential function.

Protect Yourself & Your Family

The City of Chino Hills is continuing to closely monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) situation throughout the County, State, and Nation.  The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health and the San Bernardino County Office of Emergency Services are working cooperatively to keep cities throughout the County updated with the latest information and guidance on a variety of topics ranging from personal hygiene to travel advisories. 

  • All residents should continue to practice good public health hygiene
  • People should not be excluded from activities based on their race, country of origin, or recent travel if they do not have symptoms of respiratory illness
  • All San Bernardino County residents and visitors should continue to practice good public health hygiene, as this is the height of the flu season across the County

Public health officials recommend individuals take a number of steps to protect both their health and the health of those around them, which include:

The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (DPH) has developed a Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Website for resources that can be used by the City, our businesses, and the community.  For the most updated information about COVID-19, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) where information can be found in Chinese and Spanish as well.
