The City of Indio is actively monitoring input from local, state and national health officials to assess the health risks of COVID-19, and update those risks to stakeholders. Currently, zero cases of COVID-19 have been identified in Riverside County.
It is still over five weeks before visitors will make their way to Indio to attend a series of concerts here. Throughout the year round planning process, City officials work with Indio Police, Indio Fire (CAL Fire Riverside County), American Medical Response, event producers and the County of Riverside Emergency Management Department and other partner agencies to coordinate in the event of a public safety incident.
Additionally, we are in contact with Riverside County Public Health, which is facilitating conference calls and sharing information with partner agencies. More information about their message can be found here.
At home, work, and in the public, you can utilize best practices for health during influenza season. That includes staying home if you feel sick, washing your hands, and coughing into your elbow, rather than your hands. Being prepared also means having basic essentials on hand, like an earthquake preparedness kit. For a checklist of items, and other useful FAQ’s on health preparedness, go to:
