The City of Rancho Cucamonga is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation and providing updates here. The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health is the lead authority for all public health emergencies in our city and county. 

The City advises residents and businesses to follow all recommendations from the CDC as well as local health orders from the California Department of Public Health and the San Bernardino County Department of Public Health. 

California Reopens - June 15, 2021 - See County Update for details!

San Bernardino County, along with the rest of the state, will fully reopen its economy tomorrow — eliminating various restrictions and saying farewell to the color-coded county tier system we’ve been living under for the past several months.

Beginning tomorrow, everyday life here will largely return to pre-COVID norms. Restaurants, bars, retail stores, theaters, hotels and entertainment centers may return to usual operations — meaning no capacity limitations and no requirements for social distancing.

All of California’s restrictions on travel outside the state will be lifted, and the state says it is not considering creating a vaccine passport.

The question of masks

On June 15th, 2021, California and San Bernardino County will align with the revised mask guidelines recently announced by the CDC. This states: “Fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”

This means while fully vaccinated individuals won’t need to wear face coverings in most indoor and outdoor settings, they will still be required to wear a mask on planes, buses, trains, airports and transportation stations. Other places where vaccinated people will still need to wear masks, include health care settings, prisons, homeless shelters and schools. In addition, private businesses may choose to continue requiring facial coverings.

And of course, anyone is free to wear a mask anytime they’d like, especially when around children and others who are vulnerable or not yet eligible for vaccination.

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals will still be required to wear facial coverings outside of their home. Unvaccinated Californians, can only take off their masks in public when they’re outside and can maintain 6 feet of distance with others.

As for workplaces, Gov. Gavin Newsom today said that he expects State Division of Occupational Safety and Health, better knowns as Cal/OSHA, to vote on Thursday, June 17th to allow vaccinated employees to go maskless in California workplaces. Those not vaccinated would still have to wear masks when working indoors or in vehicles. If Cal/OSHA does that, Newsom said he would immediately issue an executive order to put the new rule into effect immediately.

New County health order

An additional sign that life is returning to normal is a new county health order just signed by the County Health Officer designed to align practices at health care facilities with statewide guidelines.
