On May 22, 2020, Riverside County received approval for acceleration through Stage 2, allowing us to open in-house dining and in-person shopping with accommodations. The City of Murrieta is working with restaurants to relax parking requirements and facilitate more outdoor dining.
We are working together to safely get Murrieta back-to-business. Since the State has laid out its re-opening stages, the City of Murrieta, the SW Riverside County region and the County have formally reached out to the Governor asking for a more rapid and/or customized re-opening in our area. And we are seeing progress.
Getting back to business is a priority for our community. We will continue to advocate and support local business while emphasizing best practices in public safety. We will push to get rules changed that may not be a match for us, take action where we have the authority, and demonstrate cooperation in challenging times.
These pages will reflect the latest information on our re-opening process and how businesses can prepare to open safely.
