Riverside County Extends Face Masks And Social Distancing Into June
Face coverings and social distancing will remain in effect until June 19 in Riverside County.
That revised order came Wednesday from the county's top health officer who also said stay-at-home orders will follow those from the state.
Riverside County Health Director Dr. Cameron Kaiser says pandemic measures should be considered the "new normal."
“We expect there to be sporadic outbreaks throughout the summer. And since there will still be virus in circulation, there is a decent chance that it will be back in the fall. And when it is, it will be very hard to get that genie back in the bottle.”
“Over 210 sites, as well as along bus routes for those that have limited transportation so that they can pick up meals at those bus stops,” he said.
There are nearly 4,000 cases of COVID-19 in Riverside County and 142 people have died.
Testing is being offered to anyone, regardless of their symptoms, at its four drive-through facilities.
