Riverside County’s Department of Public Health has ordered the cancellation of large events due to COVID-19. This order follows the guidelines issued by the California Department of Public Health on Wednesday, March 11, 2020. A large gathering has currently been defined as over 250 people.
Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser ordered the cancellation stating, “These restrictions may seem harsh, given the relatively low number of coronavirus cases in Riverside County, but they are necessary if we are going to stop the spread of COVID-19. I do not take these restrictions lightly and clearly they will impact many in organizations and individuals in the community. We’re in this together and I believe they’re necessary to slow and eventually stop the spread of COVID-19.”
