In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.


On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.

Unlike the private sector, governmental budgeting and financial reporting is based upon fund accounting. As defined by the Government Finance Officers Association, a fund is a "fiscal and accounting entity with a self-balancing set of accounts recording cash and other financial resources, together with all related liabilities and residual equities or balances, and changes therein, which are segregated for the purpose of carrying on specific activities or attaining certain objectives in accordance with special regulations, restrictions, or limitations."

The budgets of the City's governmental funds (General Fund, Special Revenue Funds, and Capital Projects Funds) are prepared on a modified accrual basis where revenues are recognized when they become measurable and available, and expenditures are recorded when the related liability is incurred. Revenue availability criteria are defined as collectible within the current period or soon enough thereafter to be used to pay liabilities of the current period (i.e., sixty days after fiscal year-end).

Budgets for the City's proprietary funds (Enterprise Funds) are prepared on a full accrual basis where revenues are recognized when earned, and expenses are recognized when they are incurred.

Budgets for the City's fiduciary funds (Expendable Trust Funds and Agency Funds) are prepared on the basis consistent with the fund's accounting measurement objective. Both the City's Expendable Trust Funds and Agency Funds are prepared on a modified accrual basis.
