Congressman Ken Calvert released the following statement on the reopening of Riverside County.
“The American people have shown time and time again that they will rise to the occasion. They have done so in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As leaders, we need to look at this crisis from a number of angles. We have to find the proper balance between public health and economic concerns. We had to flatten the curve so our hospitals wouldn’t get overwhelmed. We’ve done that by social distancing and closing up much of our economy. But we cannot do that forever. I trust the people of Riverside County to make smart decisions and urge the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to do the same.”
