Biweekly Third District Update

Supervisor Washington

From the Desk of

Chuck Washington

Dear Third District Resident,

At the bottom of this email, you will find a list of resources and information. It has been updated as of Thursday, Dec. 10, 2020. To keep this email relatively brief, some of the older Third District resources are available here.

The Riverside County Third District Supervisor’s Office is working remotely to answer constituent questions about property taxes, COVID-19 restrictions and mandates, obtaining benefits and other County-related matters. Staff members are available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please call 951-955-1030 or send an email to, and someone will be in touch with you promptly. You may also visit our Facebook and Instagram pages (@supervisorchuckwashington) and Twitter page (@SupWashington).

Sincere regards,

Chuck Washington 


With ICU beds rapidly filling up across California, Riverside County is now under a regional stay-at-home order issued by the state that will last for at least three weeks. The order took effect Dec. 6 after our region’s ICU availability fell to less than 15 percent. Southern California has  7.7 percent availability at the moment; Riverside County’s availability is 4.1 percent.

ICU availability will be re-evaluated in three weeks, and the restrictions will be lifted if Southern California’s numbers meet or exceed 15 percent. The restrictions close the following industries:

- Indoor playgrounds (State rules closing outdoor playgrounds have been rescinded)           

- Wineries, bars, breweries and distilleries

- Family entertainment centers

- Cardrooms and satellite wagering

- Limited services

- Live audience sports

- Amusement parks

- Hair salons and barbershops                            

- Personal care services                                      

- Museums, zoos, and aquariums                         

- Movie theaters (except drive-in)                       

The order allows outdoor political meetings and religious services; indoor operation of retail stores with a capacity limit of 20 percent (except for grocery stores, which have an indoor capacity limit of 35 percent); and restaurant takeout and delivery.
