Attention Montclair Community

Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any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.


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.

In addition to developing a Family Emergency Plan, it is important for older Americans to consider how an emergency might affect their individual needs.

Personal Support Network

If you think you might need assistance during a disaster, talk to your neighbors, relatives, friends, and co-workers about creating a personal support network. Share and practice your emergency plan with these people. Make sure that someone in your support network has an extra key to your home and knows where you keep your emergency supplies.


If you take medicine or use a medical treatment on a daily basis, be sure you have what you need to make it on your own for at least a week. Make a list of your prescriptions including dosage, treatment, and allergy information. Teach people in your support network how to administer your medications. If it is not possible to have a week-long supply of medicines, keep as much as possible on hand and talk to your pharmacist or doctor about what else you should do to prepare.

Medical Equipment

If you use medical equipment in your home, make sure the people in your support network know how to operate it. If your medical equipment requires electricity, talk to your health care provider about what you can do to prepare for power outages.

Other Personal Items

In addition to your basic emergency supply kit, consider including other personal items that you might need such as eyeglasses (and a copy of your prescription), hearing aids (and extra batteries), wheelchair batteries, oxygen, and denture needs.
