Gov. Gavin Newsom put the Southern California region on a Stay-at-Home order. The order, which includes Riverside County, was triggered because of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity in the region.
Riverside County has 0% ICU bed availability and 0% in the region, according to the county’s website.
Last week, Newsom released the Safe Schools for All plan to reopen schools for in-person instruction across the state. Visit https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/Safe-Schools-for-All-Plan-Summary.aspx for details.
