The Ontario Convention Center continues to closely monitor the latest developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) globally and any potential impact it may have on our day-to-day operations.
Today the County of San Bernardino Public Health Officer has ordered the immediate cancellation or postponement of gatherings of more than 250 people within the county until further notice. In addition the California Department of Public Health reinforced this mandate statewide thru the end of March.
The Ontario Convention Center is working with our meeting professionals and planners to reschedule all events affected by the mandate.
In response to growing awareness and concern, the Ontario Convention Center continues to follow the precautionary guidelines of the CDC and other public health organizations, which include:
- Increased signage outlining advisable precautions (e.g. frequent handwashing, safety recommendations, etc.)
- Regular cleaning of high touch point areas such as, escalator handrails, stair railings, door handles, purchase devices and elevator buttons with CDC recommended products.
- Regular cleaning and sanitizing of facility public spaces and rest rooms.
- Adding additional hand sanitizer stations in various locations throughout the facility.
Providing a safe environment for our clients, visitors, guests and staff is our top priority. Through public health organizations such as, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) we are staying abreast of the latest updates and developments as they occur. We are also in close communication with our local public health and government officials to determine what additional safeguards may need to be implemented.
This is an evolving situation, and rest assured that any actions we take will be consistent with guidelines from these agencies. Please continue to visit our website to learn of any changes to the event schedule as they become available.
