We're in the Red, and it's a Good Thing
Riverside County, including Moreno Valley, has moved to the less restrictive Red Tier of California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This means our local businesses and services are more accessible. For detailed information on everything from banks to weddings, visit the State’s COVID-19 website here. Highlights include:

  • Shopping Centers and Retail Stores may fully open, with up to 50% of store capacity
  • Churches and Places of Worship can expand to up to 25% capacity (up to 100 people)
  • Gyms may open to 10% capacity
  • Movie theaters may also open to 25% capacity (up to 100 people)
  • Restaurants may expand indoor dining as well to 25% capacity

This is a testament to the commitment of every resident and local business to safety. As we emerge from the pandemic and engage with our local businesses and one another, it is vital that we do so safely and continue handwashing, physical distancing, face covering, and sanitizing.
We’ve (Still) Got You Covered
While vaccinations are becoming more widely available, health officials remind us of the importance of continuing to protect ourselves and one another from coronavirus. We can look forward to reopening our schools and businesses soon, so long as we continue to protect one another and ourselves. 

Please continue to wear a mask and sanitize. The “We’ve Got You Covered” initiative continues to distribute free masks and sanitizer at all three library branches and at the Business & Employment Resource Center (BERC). 

So if you’re running low, there is no need to go without. We’ve (Still) Got You Covered.
