// KTLA Reported: “We need to stop this rise in cases. We need to start flattening it and bending it back down again,” Porter said: Officials said all residents should be getting COVID-19 tests to make sure they are not contributing to the alarming spread of the virus. Several testing sites are available throughout the county, with mobiles sites included.

The state’s reopening criteria calls for San Bernardino to have a positivity rate of 8%, but on Thursday the county’s positivity rate was at 12.5%, health data showed: “The pandemic is still with us. It is alive and well, and it it spreading rapidly,” Porter said at a news conference on Friday. “We need to wear our face coverings. We need to physical distance. We need to stay home if we are sick and isolate ourselves. We need to do activities that our responsible.”…………..Among the cities with the most confirmed coronavirus cases are San Bernardino with 1,781 cases, Chino with 1,289 cases and Fontana with 1,219 cases.

Dr. Troy Pennington, who works in the emergency room at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, spoke at Friday’s news conference to share insight into the county’s current concerns about hospitals being very close to “surge capacity.”…………Dr. Pennington said as of Thursday, all of the countywide hospitalized COVID-19 patients — including those under investigation — are at the point of where the county’s peak was on April 10 when slightly more 420 COVID-19 positive patients and patients under investigation were being treated……….Although the county’s hospitals still have ICU and medical/surgical beds available, and plenty of ventilators on-hand, Dr. Pennington said the system is becoming “stressed.”………..“Now we are back to where we started,” Pennington said. “We could be coming to alternate care sites in a matter of weeks.”

Curt Hagman, chairman of the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors, said the spike in cases is being attributed to Memorial Day, the county reopening, recent protests, large group gatherings and people not wearing face masks and becoming “complacent” in the COVID-19 rules set forth by the state and the county: In May, county officials issued a new health order allowing businesses and other entities the option to require face coverings, which were not mandatory at the time. But on June 18 , Gov. Gavin Newsom said with the increase in coronavirus cases statewide, face masks are now required throughout the state in high-risk places.

San Bernardino County is well into its reopening phase; currently the only businesses that remain closed are community centers, playgrounds, theme parks, entertainment venues and group campsites:
