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Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any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

Pets depend on their owners for safety and protection. When developing your family emergency plan, remember to include your pets. Listed below are some steps you can take to prepare your pets for emergencies:

  • Keep in mind that some public shelters do not allow animals; identify evacuation locations that take pets (pet friendly hotels, kennels, veterinary hospital, etc.).
  • Develop a "buddy system" with your neighbors, family, and friends, so that someone is available to care for or evacuate your pets in your absence.
  • Build an animal evacuation kit (talk to your veterinarian about what supplies to include):
    • At least a three-day supply of food and water for your pet
    • First-aid supplies
    • Medicines and medical records
    • Crate or pet carrier
    • Extra leash or harness
    • Sanitation supplies
    • A picture of you and your pet together
    • Proof of ownership
    • Familiar items (toys, treats, blanket, etc.)
  • Familiarize your animals with evacuation procedures and cages/carriers.
  • Be sure that your animals have identification (collar tag, microchip, etc.); this may help reunite you with your animal(s) if you are separated.
  • Gather contact information for emergency animal treatment.
