County Administrative Center and other county buildings reopen for limited in-person services
The County Administrative Center, located at 4080 Lemon St. in Riverside, will again reopen to the public on Tuesday, Sept. 8. Other county facilities will also reopen, although in-person services at all locations will be limited.
Community members are asked to call ahead or check the county department’s website to find out if the service they need can be done remotely. Some in-person services may require an appointment.
“County services are even more important during this pandemic, as so many of our programs help to improve the lives of our residents,” said County Executive Officer George Johnson. “We’ve also started brand-new services to help lessen the consequences from this pandemic. Using both high-tech and low-tech ways, we can continue to serve our residents and keep everyone safer.”
County facilities closed to the public in March, then again in July following a surge of coronavirus hospitalizations. The number of new coronavirus cases have decreased over the past few weeks, reflected in fewer patients throughout Riverside County requiring hospitalization or intensive care.
Upon arriving at a county facility, community members and employees will be asked if they are feeling well or have any COVID-like symptoms. Face coverings are required for everyone to enter. Face masks or face shields will be made available to anyone without one.
When anyone reports symptoms, residents will be directed to conduct their business over the phone or online. Employees reporting symptoms will be sent home until cleared to return to work.
In addition, clear partitions have been installed at front desk or counter areas, as well as floor markings to keep people distanced by six feet when standing in line. Elevators are also limited to no more than four people at a time.
