Beaumont, CA – On Monday, March 16, 2020, Riverside County Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser issued an order prohibiting public gatherings of at least 10 people or more in Riverside County to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). In gatherings of less than 10, spaces that do not allow for at least six (6) feet of social distancing are also prohibited. In addition to the order the County of Riverside reported its first two (2) deaths associated with COVID-19. Both deaths occurred among patients in the Coachella Valley.

In response to this mandate, as well as to safeguard members of the public against the spread of COVID-19, city services have already been limited to the public. Additional services may be interrupted on an as needed basis as it relates to public health and safety. We will notify the public of any additional affected services as soon as those determinations are made.
It is recommended that senior citizens and those with underlying health conditions self -isolate, as those populations are the most susceptible to the virus.
The City is encouraging residents to educate themselves about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), including how to protect themselves and their families, by reviewing resources available at:
