California Resilience Roadmap
Residents have been staying home and saving lives since the start of the statewide stay-at-home order issued on March 19, 2020. To ensure t he City of Beaumont can reopen as quickly and safely as possible under the State’s order, the City is using the  State’s Resilience Roadmap

All cities and counties in the state will move through the Resilience Roadmap together. Exceptions to the roadmap include:

  1. A city or county may implement additional public health restrictions, OR
  2. County Variance is granted by the state allowing the county to reopen faster if they are able to show that have met the readiness criteria prescribed by the California Department of Public Health. 

County Variance 
On Friday, May 22, the California Department of Public Health approved the county’s request to reopen more businesses, as part of the governor’s accelerated phase two. As part of the variance request, a Readiness and Reopening Framework was also submitted. The framework provides a path to reopen the Riverside County economy with the proper health and safety measures in place. 

Beaumont - Back to Business
“I am excited that we are moving forward with the reopening of Riverside County,” stated Mayor Santos. “As we move through the Governor’s recovery plan, the City of Beaumont remains committed to ensuring each local business reopens successfully and safely.”

Businesses are encouraged to complete a brief survey regarding their experience during the COVID-19 pandemic online at

Resident Survey
In addition to the guidance issued by the Public Health Department, the City of Beaumont is interested in the opinions of our residents; we want to know what makes you feel safe while supporting our local businesses.

There is no cost for testing at either the county or state operated facilities.
COVID-19 Testing
Riverside County health officials are encouraging young people to get tested for coronavirus.

More than 93,000 people have been tested in Riverside County and health officials say it is important that all segments of the population get tested to help determine the spread of coronavirus in the community. While adults have been well represented in testing, officials said they would like more of those 25 and younger to get screened.

Hot Weather Tips
Hot weather can be dangerous and even deadly. Precautions must be taken to ensure health and safety during our summer months - A person suffering from the heat may not realize it. 

Officials urge that seniors over 65 remain at home and use their air conditioners to stay cool, then reach out to the Riverside County Office of Aging for utility assistance when the bill arrives.
CHIEF'S CORNER - Kids & Pets in Hot Cars

We are heading into the summer months and temperatures are already starting to heat up. We would like to take some time to remind our residents about the dangers of hot cars for our pets and children. Never leave a child or pet alone in a parked car, even with the windows rolled down or the air conditioning on. On a hot day a vehicle’s temperature can rise to dangerous levels in as little as ten minutes.

For children, heat exhaustion can occur at temperatures above 90 degrees Fahrenheit and heat stroke can occur when temperatures rise above 105 degrees. When a child is enclosed in a hot car, he/she loses body fluids and salts through sweating, causing heat exhaustion. If not treated immediately, heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke. Heat stroke occurs when a child can no longer sweat and his/her body temperature rises, which can cause severe damage to the brain, liver and kidneys, even death.

Many pets die each year as a result of being left in parked cars during warm weather. During a mild summer day and even if parked in the shade, temperatures inside a parked car can reach well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit very quickly. A dog's normal body temperature is about 102 degrees, a dog can withstand an increase in body temperature to 106 degrees for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death.

To avoid a tragedy, keep your pets at home where they have access to water and air conditioning. Never leave children unattended in a vehicle, even for a few minutes and keep these safety precautions in mind:

  • Never leave your child or family pet unattended in a motor vehicle, even with the windows cracked open a few inches.
  • Always lock car doors and trunks -- even at home -- and keep keys out of children's reach.
  • Watch children and family pets closely around cars, particularly when loading or unloading items.
  • Always make sure all children and family pets have left the car when you reach your destination.
  • Don't overlook sleeping infants or pets.
  • If your child or family pet gets locked inside a car, try to get them out and if you are unable to dial 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately.
  • When restraining children in a car that has been parked in the heat, check to make sure seating surfaces and equipment (car seats and seat belt buckles) aren't excessively hot.
  • Be wary of child-resistant locks. Teach older children how to disable the driver's door lock.

If you see a young child or pet unattended in a vehicle, immediately contact police by dialing 911 or calling our non-emergency business line at 951-769-8500.
