Riverside County Orders Face Coverings & Social Distancing Until June 19th

Riverside County’s current health order prohibiting gatherings outside the home expires on April 30th 2020.

Starting on Friday, May 1st, 2020, Riverside County will follow Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay at home order as it pertains to gatherings. Which means, there are no gatherings. 

Newsom’s order states that all California residents must stay home unless they are engaged in an essential business or activity, such as grocery shopping or visiting the doctor.

The governor’s order does not have an expiration date.

Riverside County will follow the direction of the Governor’s Office going forward.

As soon as the governor relaxes the stay at home order, Riverside County health officials say they will be ready to move into the second phase of reopening businesses.

Riverside County continues to allow for certain recreational activities including the use of trails and parks for hiking, biking, and equestrian uses. Golf is also permitted in Riverside County with certain limitations.

Check with your local city, as some cities are keeping parks closed, golf courses closed, and are limiting recreational activities.

If you leave your house for any reason, the County requires you to cover your face and keep at least 6 feet distance between you and any other human being, and those requirements will be in place through June 19th.
