(Victor Valley)– As part of its ongoing effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, San Bernardino County is now requiring all visitors to the County Government Center to have their temperature checked with a non-contact device before entering the building. Individuals who refuse to comply and those with a temperature above 100 degrees will be denied entrance.
“With the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in the County and elsewhere across the country, we are doing everything we can to protect both visitors to the Government Center as well as our own employees,” said San Bernardino County CEO Gary McBride. “This quick, simple procedure will help limit spread of the virus while posing only a very minor inconvenience to those visiting County offices.”
County employees working at the Government Center and other government facilities have been required to have their temperatures checked as part of the standard procedures implemented during this phase of the reopening schedule. No record of the individual’s temperature will be kept, stored or shared.
