“We have long looked forward to reopening more Riverside County businesses, which provide

valuable goods, services and jobs vital to the fabric of our economy,” said Vice Chair Karen

Spiegel, Second District Supervisor. “It’s very important that while visiting these businesses, all

residents continue to do their part to slow the spread of the disease by wearing face coverings

and maintaining six feet from others.”
