Covid-19 Vaccination Resources Webpage
In an effort to make it a little easier to figure out where, when and how you can get a coronavirus vaccination, the City of Moreno Valley has created a Vaccination Resources webpage. It includes vaccination locations here in Moreno Valley, along with those close by (i.e., Riverside, Perris), when they're open, whom they're vaccinating right now, and contact information to check availability and to make appointments.
Get Tested to Help Isolate the Virus,
and Help Move Riverside County into
Less-Restrictive Red Tier
In addition to masking, distancing, washing, limiting outings, and getting vaccinated, Riverside County residents need to provide the state with an accurate ongoing picture of the county's rate of coronavirus infection, so state health officials can determine when we can safely reopen more businesses and activities with appropriate health precautions. That means testing. In coordination with Riverside County Public Health, the Moreno Valley Conference & Recreation Center is hosting coronavirus testing provided by Curative in the parking lot at the main entrance. This is a walk-up testing site; participants will exit their vehicles. Testing is available Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Participants must register online at Curative.com. Testing also remains available at Cottonwood Golf Center; appointments can be made at https://gettested.ruhealth.org/.
Guardrail Upgrades Improve Traffic Safety
The City recently completed a street guardrail upgrade project, which improved existing safety guardrails at 20 locations citywide. The project provided adjustments to or replacements of existing guardrails to meet the current state guardrail safety standards. New end safety treatments were also added to all guardrails at these locations. These important improvements will help make MoVal roads safer. This project was fully funded by the federal Highway Safety Improvement Program.
