Coronavirus (COVID-19)


The San Bernardino County Department of Public Health (DPH) continues to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the California Department of Public Health to respond to reports of Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) as the situation is quickly evolving. The City of Fontana is closely monitoring the situation. 

Residents of Fontana are encouraged to stay home as much as possible while only participating in essential activities, such as critical work functions and shopping for necessities. We know these measures are challenging, but social distancing will help to protect all in our community.
