The County of San Bernardino is committed to rebuilding and sustaining a high quality of life for its residents and businesses.
To support our local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County Health orders and direction, San Bernardino County is implementing the COVID Compliant Business Partnership Program.
This program has two components.
