Community and Economic Development Update, June 18, 2020
Help support our local economy and #ShopRC!
Part of what makes Rancho Cucamonga special are the unique business owners who choose to stake their livelihoods here. We have the opportunity to support them during these trying times. The City of Rancho Cucamonga and the Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce have partnered to create the #ShopRC initiative to promote shopping locally and help support our local economy.
In an effort to understand the impacts COVID-19 has created on local businesses, the City has created a short survey to help guide decisions that will support local businesses in the community through this crisis. Your feedback is important and will remain confidential.
Guidance for Outdoor Parking Lot Dining Areas
State and local Health Department regulations have limited the capacity of interior dining and retail areas in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic. The City of Rancho Cucamonga has created guidance for outdoor dining, sales, and service areas. These temporary installations will allow increased capacity to serve patrons normally handled inside the business.

If you are interested in setting up an outdoor dining area, please contact the Rancho Cucamonga Fire District at (909) 477-2770 or by email  RCfire@CityofRC.us  
San Bernardino County Department of Public Health Can Help Test Your Employees
A large part of the County’s reopening plan depends on businesses being able to serve the public while ensuring the health and safety of employees. The County can partner with local businesses to increase COVID-19 testing among your employees and support those who are positive or exposed. 
 
Use this  Business Partnership Form  if you:  
  • Would like to provide testing to your employees 
  • Are interested in hosting public testing 
  • Are already providing public testing 
 
For interested businesses, a County official will be in touch. If you have any questions or wish to contact the County’s Public Health Department, please call (909) 252-4406

COVID-19 Business Operation Plan Template Available

In an effort to support local businesses with a plan for reopening, the City along with Victorville and Yucaipa have created a “COVID-19 Business Reopening Plan Template” for local small businesses to use. The Plan can be customized to fit specific business operations and aid in the compliance of safety and physical distancing.
