Temporary Outdoor Operating Permits Expanded to All Fontana Businesses

Temporary Outdoor Operating Permit

Fontana, Calif.- All businesses within Fontana reopening under COVID-19 county and state guidelines can now apply for a free temporary outdoor operating permit

Last month, the Fontana City Council approved temporary permits for restaurants to create outdoor seating areas and/or curbside pick-up. Retail stores also are allowed to create temporary curbside/storefront pick-up areas or outdoor waiting areas. With the latest update approved by the Council during its August 11 meeting, the permit expands to all businesses reopening under COVID-19 health and safety guidelines established by the county and state. 

The permit program is part of the City’s ongoing efforts to help local businesses during this unprecedented period, and expands on Fontana’s well-established “Open for Business” approach. The largest city in San Bernardino County, Fontana has emerged as an economic and employment driver for the Inland Empire and all of Southern California.
