Re: California’s Pandemic Roadmap
Dear Governor Newsom:
San Bernardino, Orange, Riverside, and San Diego counties commend you for recognizing California’s regional geographic and demographic differences as your Administration reopens the State’s economy guided by medical and public health criteria.
As California moves toward the next round of Phase 2 openings, we respectfully request a meeting with you to identify strategies for achieving a safe, reasonable, and sustainable reopening of our economy in coordination with the State.
We appreciate your partnership with local government and efforts to preserve local control while ensuring the health and safety of all Californians. Several of our counties have adopted Readiness and Recovery Plans developed in coordination with business leaders representing various key sectors to identify guidelines that will ensure employees and consumers are protected. Our highest priority is also the well-being of our residents, and we maintain a deep and ongoing commitment to their overall and complete health.
We look forward to your response. If you have any questions regarding our request, please contact Josh Candelaria, San Bernardino County’s Governmental and Legislative Director, at 909 387-4821 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
