GCVCC Joins 18 County Chambers Asking Gov. Newsom to Begin Lifting Restrictions
On September 16th, the GCVCC joined a coalition of eighteen Riverside County Chambers asking Governor Newsom to allow our County to move through the newly enacted color coded system more expediently. Under the Governor's plan as announced, even after meeting more stringent guidelines County re-openings would be delayed until a 21-day wait period expires. "Our hope is that he will allow our businesses to start reopening early next week," says Chamber President Joshua Bonner.
