Riverside County supervisor tests positive for coronavirus

Riverside County Supervisor Karen Spiegel represents the Second District, which includes the unincorporated communities of Coronita, El Cerrito, Home Gardens and Highgrove, and the cities of Corona, Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Norco, and the western half of the City of Riverside.

Riverside County Supervisor Karen Spiegel announced that she had contract COVID-19 after spending 14 days in quarantine due to a COVID-19 positive exposure at work.

“I still somehow managed to contract the virus after my quarantine period ended,” said Spiegel. “My interactions and exposure to the world outside my home has been very limited and restricted over the last 30 days, which demonstrates the ability to contract the virus from people within your family unit who may be asymptomatic.”

In June, after several employees who work at the County Administrative Center tested positive for coronavirus, all board offices and the executive office were temporarily closed. 

In response to the growing number of local coronavirus cases and rising hospitalizations, the County Administrative Center, along with many other county buildings, closed to the public on July 13. County services are primarily offered through online methods, over the phone, or by mail.

Spiegel encourages residents to help combat the spread of COVID-19 by joining Riverside County’s “Pledge to Fight COVID” commitment to slow the spread of the virus in Riverside County. To take the pledge, visit
