Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code.
This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.
In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.
ATTENTION MONTCLAIR BUSINESSES
On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.
On July 1, 2001, the Montclair Fire Department implemented a new, integrated, fire-based Emergency Medical Services (EMS) system that added paramedics to the emergency medical services provided by the Fire Department. Prior to July 1, 2001, the Montclair Fire Department ran two basic life support engines and one basic life support squad. A private ambulance service provides transportation. The new system utilizes paramedics on both fire engines, which deliver rapid paramedic intervention in medical emergencies. A private paramedic transport ambulance arrives on-scene with firefighters to provide a paramedic team. In implementing this system, EMS response times have been reduced significantly. We now provide a paramedic on-scene in less than eight minutes, 94 percent of the time.
This program has also done well in generating revenue to help off-set costs of running the program. This has been accomplished through implementing an Emergency Medical Services and Paramedic Subscription Program and a Vehicle Fluid Recovery Program. The Montclair Fire Department strives to provide the finest emergency medical services available to our residents and businesses. Maintaining a stable funding source is the key to a successful Paramedic Program.
