City of Fontana logoTo assist businesses with COVID-related impacts on operations, the Fontana City Council established a new process to allow businesses to obtain a Temporary Outdoor Operating Permit

The permit allows restaurants to create temporary outdoor seating areas and/or curbside pick-up as quickly as possible, as well as permits retail stores to create temporary curbside/storefront pick-up areas or outdoor waiting areas. This includes utilizing sidewalks and parking spaces if safe to do so.

The permit was developed to assist businesses with establishing a safe, clean environment for workers and customers in compliance with State of California COVID-19 industry guidance.
