County launches mobile app to report nonessential businesses

Riverside County announced the launch of RivCoMobile, a new app created to report violations of state and county public health orders issued to stem the spread of COVID-19. 

The new app will provide critical data to public health officials tracking the source of COVID-19 outbreaks and lead to efficiently responding to businesses that are risking the health of the community.

“We must mitigate and suppress the spread of the coronavirus,” said Chair V. Manuel Perez, Fourth District Supervisor. “This app will help identify hotspots that will lead to efficiently responding to businesses that are risking the health of the community,”

RivCoMobile, which also provides services and information to residents, has a “Coronavirus” feature on the landing page that allows users to make anonymous reports about possible violations of orders issued by the State of California or the County of Riverside public health officer. The app allows users to specify the address and type of violation in the report with the option to attach a photo.

These violations may include the operation of nonessential businesses, unauthorized gatherings and failure by essential businesses to comply with health orders such as facial coverings and social distancing for staff or patrons.

“Unfortunately, we’ve received numerous reports of violations throughout the County. This data will allow us to map areas of noncompliance, where we anticipate there will be associated outbreaks of COVID-19 and a corresponding need for resources,” said Dr. Geoffrey Leung, Riverside University Health System.

RivCoMobile is available for both iOS and Android. Anonymous violation reports can also be made at www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus.
