(Victor Valley)– San Bernardino County has made great strides in improving our COVID-19 numbers since the Memorial Day-Fourth of July-related spikes, and we are trending closer and closer to meeting the State’s metrics for moving into the next tier, which would allow us to reopen schools, restaurants, gyms, nail salons, and places of worship for limited indoor operations.
The unanimous message from our health officials is let’s not blow it this Labor Day weekend. The need to avoid congregating with those outside one’s immediate household is particularly urgent during this holiday weekend.
“We get it: people will want to get together with friends and others to enjoy this Labor Day weekend,” said County Public Health Director Corwin Porter. “But the data are clear. These gatherings are the primary culprit in spreading the disease in San Bernardino County.”
The County is urging all residents to remember the big picture and consider those at risk for serious illness. Remember that almost 750 County residents have already died from this disease. The more cautious and responsible we all are, the fewer people will suffer — and the more quickly we can reopen churches, schools, restaurants, bars, and other businesses.
