CATHEDRAL CITY – This community, known for robust audience attendance at City Council meetings, is about to be curtailed for public health reasons.

This is done in accordance with the Riverside County Public Health Officer’s countywide order mandating all venues to have no more than 10 people at any given time, with exceptions of essential personnel, through the end of April to stop the spread of coronavirus. 

In accordance to the Emergency Declaration issued by the City Council on March 16, 2020 and the new directive from the county health officer, all City Council meetings will be limited to no more than 10 members of the public.  Entrance will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Constituents wanting to provide input on an agenda item can submit their correspondences to the City Clerk Tracey Martinez either via email at or by phone at (760) 770-0372.

The California Department of Public Health today, March 17, announced the most recent statistics on COVID-19. California now has 472 confirmed cases. There have been 11 deaths (including one non-California resident).
