Latest sign that life is returning to some sense of normalcy is that City Hall will open June 1

PALM SPRINGS — With each passing day, there are signs — some big, some small — that life is beginning to resemble a sense of normalcy, The latest sign is that Palm Springs City Hall and other city facilities, including the lobbies at the Police and Fire departments, will re-open to the public for business on Tuesday, June 1.

With COVID-19 cases decreasing in Riverside County and more than 80% of Palm Springs residents over the age of 12 now fully vaccinated, the city is physically opening its doors for business.

Hours of operation are as follows:

  • City Hall, 3200 E. Tahquitz Canyon Way, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
  • Lobby at Palm Springs Police Department, 200 S. Civic Drive, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Thursday.
  • Lobby at Palm Springs Fire Department, 300 El Cielo Road, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Monday – Thursday.

As the re-openings approach, the city is assuring the community that the safety of the public and our employees continues to be of the upmost importance and that the following safety protocols will be in place:

  • City Staff will be required to wear a face covering when interacting with the public and other staff.
  • Members of the public will be required to wear a face covering when inside a City facility, with few exceptions as outlined in the CDPH guidance.
  • Temperature checks will no longer be required. However, temperature stations will remain available for those who wish to use them.
  • Physical distancing at shared counters and waiting counters should be maintained with stanchions and floor markers in place.
  • Hand sanitizer will also be readily available to the public.

These guidelines will be in effect until the State’s Beyond the Blueprint Framework becomes effective on June 15, when all sectors may return to usual operations with limited exceptions.
