Latest county projections on cases. (Colors highlights different scenarios the county could face)

The doubling rate for Riverside County is currently 8.7 days. That means it would take nine days for cases to double. This is a big increase from the previous data that showed our doubling rate at 4.6 days, showing the promising results that protective measures like staying at home, covering the face, and testing are having.

As part of continued efforts to grow the doubling rate and "flatten the curve" of coronavirus, Riverside County public health officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser ordered everyone to wear a face-covering when leaving home, including essential workers.

Face coverings can be bandanas, scarves, neck gaiters or other clothing that does not have visible holes.

This order runs through April 30.
