Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code.
This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.
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.
ATTENTION MONTCLAIR BUSINESSES
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.
The Montclair Fire Department employs firefighters and paramedics located in two different fire stations in the city, allowing for the best possible response time to incidents within that station's respective response district. The department is dispatched to a variety of incidents including structure fires, hazardous materials mitigation, medical calls, traffic accidents, confined space rescue, etc.
Fire stations are located at 8901 Monte Vista Avenue (Station 151) and 10825 Monte Vista Avenue (Station 152). Both stations are staffed with a three-person paramedic engine.
Each fire station is set up to serve as a home away from home for the firefighters who work what is called a 48/96 schedule. They work two 24-hour shifts and then are off for 96 hours, or four days. Since firefighters “live” at their assigned fire station during that time, Montclair Fire Stations are equipped with a kitchen, dormitory, TV room, and an office area firefighters use to enter reports from incidents and inspections that they perform.
