August 2, 2021:  COVID-19 SUMMER SURGE UPDATE

COVID-19 SUMMER SURGE UPDATE

On June 15, 2021 when the State of California rolled back its various COVID-19 health orders the State, San Bernardino County and the City of Rialto were all at metrics for COVID-19 cases near the levels at the beginning of the pandemic and well below all previous surges. Since that time case rates, positivity rates, and hospitalizations have all shown a significant increase. As case metrics have gotten worse, daily testing rates have seen a decrease. Although nearly 50% of Rialto residents 12 years of age and older have been vaccinated, the rate of vaccination has slowed and we are still far away from the goal of 70% vaccination. 

 

Mask Requirements and Recommendation Changes

On July 27, 2021 the CDC added a recommendation for fully vaccinated people to wear a mask in public indoor settings in areas of substantial or high transmission. On July 28, 2021 the CDPH added a recommendation in the mask requirements for universal masking indoors statewide regardless of vaccination status. 

 

On July 28, 2021 the State of California announced a requirement for vaccination or weekly testing for all State employees and most healthcare workers regardless of employer to be implemented through the month of August.
