Effective: May 8th, 2020

Face coverings are no longer required – but still strongly recommended – in San Bernardino County as the result of new health order requested by the Board of Supervisors.

The new order repeals the April 23 Omnibus health order that required face coverings as well as social distancing at essential businesses, and banned gatherings and short-term rentals.

Although no longer regulated by a county health order, gatherings and short-term rentals are still prohibited and social distancing at essential businesses are still required under the state’s “stay-at-home” order.

The County is also allowing the opening of city and privately owned parks, trails, lakes and golf courses. Please check with individual facilities regarding their plans to open.

For FAQ’s visit sbcovid19.com and click daily updates and view the update for April 23rd.

– Bookstores

– Florists

– Antique stores

– Music stores

– Home and furnishing stores

– Sporting goods

To start reopening efforts should be phased in starting with curbside pickup until further notice.

Supply chains supporting the above businesses can also open under this early stage of Phase 2, specifically in the manufacturing and logistics sectors.

All businesses will need to modify operations to reduce contact, ensure proper distancing, and ensure proper PPE and sanitation equipment for all employees, preferably with outdoor breakrooms and physically distant seating.

When businesses eventually open their doors to patrons, a workplace should restrict entry to 25 percent capacity and slowly advance from there as health indicators are evaluated.

Deferred Preventative Care, San Bernardino County

https://covid19.ca.gov/

Preventive care services and non-emergency surgeries, like organ replacements and tumor removals, can take place if hospitals have enough capacity and protective equipment to do so safely.

Eye exams and elective procedures should be cancelled or rescheduled.

If possible, health care visits should be done remotely.

With respect to dental services, deferred and preventive care may be resumed. Contact your health care provider to see what services they are providing.

Violation of the order is a crime punishable by up to $1,000 fine or imprisonment up to 90 days, or both.

Clarification: The specific references to drive-in religious services so close to major religious observances taking place during the next four days, for which organizations had already conducted considerable planning and incurred expenses, are clarified as follows: Organizations that have planned such services for the coming weekend should proceed with those services if they choose to do so and make every effort to prevent contact between congregants.

Regarding the use of face-coverings while driving, there is no need for drivers traveling alone or with members of their households to wear face coverings unless they must lower their windows to interact with first responders, food service workers, or others who are not members of their households.

Executive Order, Governor Newsom

Full Executive Order: https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/03/27/governor-newsom-takes-executive-action-to-establish-a-statewide-moratorium-on-evictions/

The order is effective immediately and will apply through May 31, 2020 and builds on the Governor’s previous executive action authorizing local governments to halt evictions.

SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020. The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts. It also requires tenants to declare in writing, no more than seven days after the rent comes due, that the tenant cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19.

The tenant would be required to retain documentation but not required to submit it to the landlord in advance. And the tenant would remain obligated to repay full rent in a timely manner and could still face eviction after the enforcement moratorium is lifted. The order takes effect immediately, and provides immediate relief to tenants for whom rent is due on April 1st.

Today’s action builds on Governor Newsom’s previous executive order authorizing local governments to halt evictions for renters impacted by the pandemic.

A copy of the Governor’s executive order can be found here and the text of the order can also be found here.

Effective: March 16th – May 31st, 2020, unless extended

Authorizes local governments to:

Halt evictions for renters & homeowners.

Slow foreclosures.

Protects against utility shut offs including:

Electric, Gas, Water, Internet, Landline telephone & Cell phone service

Requests banks & other financial institutions to halt foreclosures & related evictions during this time.

DOES NOT:

Relieve a tenant from the obligation to pay rent.

Restrict the landlord’s ability to recover rent that is due.

San Bernardino County

https://www.sbcounty.gov/bosd1/multimedia/LatestNews/default?DocID=297

Effective: March 24th, 2020

Substantive limitations on residential & commercial evictions & foreclosures.

Executive Order, Governor Newsom

Full Executive Order: https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/03/27/governor-newsom-takes-executive-action-to-establish-a-statewide-moratorium-on-evictions/

The order is effective immediately and will apply through May 31, 2020 and builds on the Governor’s previous executive action authorizing local governments to halt evictions.

SACRAMENTO – Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order banning the enforcement of eviction orders for renters affected by COVID-19 through May 31, 2020. The order prohibits landlords from evicting tenants for nonpayment of rent and prohibits enforcement of evictions by law enforcement or courts. It also requires tenants to declare in writing, no more than seven days after the rent comes due, that the tenant cannot pay all or part of their rent due to COVID-19.

The tenant would be required to retain documentation but not required to submit it to the landlord in advance. And the tenant would remain obligated to repay full rent in a timely manner and could still face eviction after the enforcement moratorium is lifted. The order takes effect immediately, and provides immediate relief to tenants for whom rent is due on April 1st.

Today’s action builds on Governor Newsom’s previous executive order authorizing local governments to halt evictions for renters impacted by the pandemic.

A copy of the Governor’s executive order can be found here and the text of the order can also be found here.

Effective: March 16th – May 31st, 2020, unless extended

Authorizes local governments to:

Halt evictions for renters & homeowners.

Slow foreclosures.

Protects against utility shut offs including:

Electric, Gas, Water, Internet, Landline telephone & Cell phone service

Requests banks & other financial institutions to halt foreclosures & related evictions during this time.

DOES NOT:

Relieve a tenant from the obligation to pay rent.

Restrict the landlord’s ability to recover rent that is due.

California Tenant Protections, Inland Counties Legal Services, Inc.

(888) 245-4257 or apply online: inlandlegal.org/apply

The deadline to respond to an eviction can be extended to 60 days if you take certain steps. There are local laws with additional protections, but if your city or county does not have a local law follow these steps:

  • Tell your landlord in writing by mail, e-mail, and/or text message.
  • Tell your landlord as soon as possible. You must notify your landlord before rent is due or within 7 days of when rent is due.
  • Tell your landlord why you cannot pay rent. Examples may include because you lost your job, your hours were reduced, your children’s school is closed, and you do not have child care, you are sick with COVID-19 and have medical expenses related to COVID-19, or you are caring for someone with COVID-19, etc.
  • Include any proof that shows why you cannot pay all or part of your rent. Examples may include e-mails or letters from your employer, paystubs showing reduced hours, e-mails or news of school closures and lack of daycare providers, doctor’s notes, etc.

Do not ignore eviction notices or court papers. You must still respond. Contact Inland Counties Legal Services immediately if you have received a notice or court papers from your landlord.
