Some health restrictions put in place during pandemic have been lifted in Riverside County

A little bit of social freedom for Riverside County residents on Saturday. Some of the restrictions put in place during the pandemic have been lifted.

The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously on Friday to rescind all but one component of a series of restrictions imposed by the Riverside County public health officer stemming from the coronavirus emergency, removing potential penalties that residents would have otherwise faced for violations.

Officials say wearing face-coverings in public are no longer mandatory, but is still strongly recommended.
