The Blueprint is updated every Tuesday and displays color-coded tiers that indicate which activities and businesses are open based on local COVID-19 case rates and test positivity. Riverside County, which includes the City of Temecula, remains in the strictest tier (the Purple Tier).
Businesses like restaurants and gyms can operate outside, while personal care businesses like hair salons, barber shops and nail salons can operate inside. For additional information, visit covid19.ca.gov/safer-economy/.

RE: COVID-19 VACCINATION AVAILABILITY AND CLINICS FOR RIVERSIDE COUNTY RESIDENTS
The County of Riverside is selecting vaccine distribution sites countywide and we expect a County location within the Southwest Riverside County area soon. The issue of vaccine distribution for the County is not necessarily site locations, but that there are not enough vaccines to be distributed. Supply is low and demand is high so each time the County receives vaccines and opens vaccination registrations, they are immediately booked. The County of Riverside continues to update their webpage www.rivcoph.org/COVID-19-Vaccine as more appointments/locations become available for citizens to register. The last appointments posted on January 28th for County vaccination clinics were reserved for the most vulnerable age group (age 85 and older); and the appointments filled up quickly. Citizens can dial 211 to get onto an interest list.
Additionally, there are private clinics or organizations that have received (or may receive) vaccines directly from the manufacturer (similar to flu shots) or the State. Some private organizations may receive vaccines specifically to provide to their own healthcare workers (such as certain hospitals); other private organizations or clinics may provide vaccines to the public (similar to clinics that provide flu shots). The County has listed private organizations that have received vaccine dosages on their website rivcoph.org/COVID-19-Vaccine (scroll to view dashboard). In addition, the County has a webpage that lists private vaccine providers that are administering the vaccine to the public: rivcoph.org/COVID-19-Vaccine-Providers.
