Limited activities that are still allowed under this order include providing lodging to protect the homeless population or for essential workers. Providing lodging for anyone who must leave their home to safely isolate away from other family members, or family members displaced due to someone self-isolating at home, are also permitted under the order.

“Now isn’t the time to visit Riverside County,” said Kaiser. “Slowing the spread of COVID-19 means folks need to stay put in their own neighborhoods. Unless you’ve got nowhere else safe to be, please visit later.”

The short-term lodging order applies to all cities and unincorporated areas of Riverside County. The order further states that no owner, tenant or marketing agent may rent or lease any short-term rental, vacation rental or timeshare.
