(Diamond Bar, CA, March 19) – On Thursday, March 19 at a special meeting, the City Council adopted a resolution declaring a local emergency in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“As the rapid global spread of COVID-19 has resulted in unprecedented measures in an attempt to reduce the spread of the virus, this declaration of a local emergency allows the City to quickly allocate critical resources and implement measures to protect the health and safety of our community and workforce” stated Mayor Steve Tye.

In response to mandates issued by Governor Newsom and public health agencies to lessen the spread of COVID-19 by supporting social distancing, the City of Diamond Bar has implemented temporary operational changes that will now be extended through to April 30, 2020.

The temporary changes consist of the closing of all City facilities to the public, including City Hall, Diamond Bar Center and Heritage Park Community Center, cancellation of all recreation programs and classes and City special events. City meetings are canceled for the month of March but will resume in April with safety precautions.

We are continuously monitoring the updates from Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Los Angeles Public Health Department as well as from federal, state and local agencies and will make adjustments to our response as needed.

During the closure, City Hall has transitioned to online services. Residents and businesses are encouraged to call the main line at (909) 839-7000. Visit www.diamondbarca.gov to view services available online.

To inquire about facility reservations, class and special event cancellations, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (909) 839-7070.
