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Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any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

Procedure to Obtain a Firearm from Police Custody

In order for a law enforcement agency to return a firearm to its owner, the owner must first complete an application for a determination by the Department of Justice as to whether he or she is eligible to possess a firearm. This Law Enforcement Gun Release Application is available online at the California Department of Justice website. The application form provides instructions on how to obtain a firearms clearance and the required fees.

When the firearm eligibility check has been completed, both the applicant and the custodial law enforcement agency are notified by mail of the eligibility check results. If the eligibility check is approved, the applicant must provide a copy of the approval notice to the law enforcement agency at the time of release.

Release of property at the Montclair Police Department is by appointment only. To make an appointment with the Evidence Clerk, call (909) 448-3651.
