Governor Newsom Orders Additional Closing of Indoor Business Operations - July 13 -- NEW
Effective immediately, additional indoor business operations to close immediately. Closures apply to counties that have been on the California Department of Public Health County Monitoring List for 3 consecutive days. This includes the County of San Bernardino. Required shut downs include fitness centers, worship services, offices for non-critical sectors, personal care services, hair salons, barbershops, and malls unless they can be modified to operate outside or by pick-up.
Previous indoor business operation closures which remain effected include dine-in restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, family entertainment centers (for example: bowling alleys, miniature golf, batting cages and arcades), zoos and museums, and cardrooms.
Additionally, bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs MUST CLOSE BOTH indoor and outdoor statewide, unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals. Alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal. Visit covid19.ca.gov for more information and view the State Guidance.
National Testing Supply Shortage Impacting County Testing Capabilities -- NEW
July 8, 2020 - For the immediate short term, San Bernardino County will be limiting COVID-19 testing in response to severe supply chain disruptions. The County hopes to resume its expanded testing regime by next week, once it obtains adequate testing supplies.
“There have been concerns about testing supply shortages throughout the state and within our county,” said Interim County Public Health Director Corwin Porter. “We are continuously trying to obtain the necessary resources to ensure that we can provide testing in our county at peak capacity.”
The supply shortage is not limited to San Bernardino County, but rather is affecting communities around the state and the nation. According to a recent survey by the Association for Molecular Pathology, more than 70% of U.S. clinical laboratories have suffered significant delays to COVID-19 testing programs as a result of ongoing supply chain disruptions. The organization said that the expansion of COVD-19 testing capacity at laboratories around the country has put pressure on supply chains that handle reagents and other materials used to learn whether a patient is infected.
California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly acknowledged the state is facing a testing supply shortage.
“As more states begin to scale their testing capabilities, new constraints are materializing within the supply chain,” Ghaly said. “Simultaneously, laboratories are becoming overwhelmed with high numbers of specimens, slowing down processing timelines.” He urged laboratories to “prioritize testing turnaround for individuals who are most at risk of spreading the virus to others.”
Those with existing appointments should check their email to learn if their appointment has been cancelled.
“Our hope is that we can obtain the necessary supplies very soon so that we can maintain our testing capacity,” Porter said. “Without a sufficient supply of tests, this will bring challenges in identifying cases and treating those who are diagnosed positive for COVID-19. Tests are necessary to identify and isolate positive cases quickly so that we can keep the virus from spreading throughout our county.”
The County will share news and updates immediately when we confirm testing supplies are adequate to meet demand.
Youth Sports Are Not Allowed According to State Guidelines -- NEW
The County of San Bernardino issued some clarifications regarding youth sports in their July 6 update. Along with the closing of indoor operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19, youth sports are not allowed under current state guidelines. Many counties, including the County of San Bernardino, were under the impression that youth sports for purposes of conditioning, drills and exercise activities were allowed with social distancing, frequent hand washing and use of masks when closer than six feet or indoors. However, according to the state this is not the case.
At this time recreational team and youth sports of any kind, including purposes of conditioning, drills and exercise activities are not permitted. It is unfortunate and the County indicated its understanding that children would like the opportunity to participate in their normal team activities but now is not the time to let our guard down. The County will share official guidelines for recreational team and youth sports when they are made available by the state. In the meantime, the County encourages all residents to do their part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

State Mandates That Face Coverings Be Worn Statewide - June 18
People in California must wear face coverings when they are in the high-risk situations. The risk for COVID-19 remains and the increasing number of Californians who are leaving their homes for work and other needs, increases the risk for COVID-19 exposure and infection.
Over the last four months, we have learned a lot about COVID-19 transmission, most notably that people who are infected but are asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic play an important part in community spread. The use of face coverings by everyone can limit the release of infected droplets when talking, coughing, and/or sneezing, as well as reinforce physical distancing.
Chino Hills Skate Park and Warm-up Arenas at the McCoy Equestrian & Recreation Center to Open June 18

Warm-up arenas will be open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Friday.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
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.
The list below of food pantries has been provide by San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Nutrition.
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.
- 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.

- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using household cleaning spray or wipes that kills germs
- Avoid close contact with individuals who are sick.
- N95 masks are NOT recommended outside of a healthcare setting. Surgical masks can be worn by sick individuals to reduce their likelihood of spreading germs.
