Price Gouging

Do you suspect that you may have been a victim of price gouging?

Under California Penal Code 396, individuals, businesses and other entities are prohibited from raising the price of major necessities (food, drink, water, flashlights, medical supplies, antibacterial products, etc.) by more than 10% for 30 days after a declaration of emergency. 

Similarly, Riverside County Ordinance 768 states that it is unlawful for any person, company, or business to sell or offer to sell emergency items (consumer food, emergency/medical supplies, or gasoline) for an amount which exceeds 10% the price charged for said goods on the day prior to the emergency proclamation.  

A violation of this code or ordinance can result in fines and possible jailtime.

CDFA PRESS RELEASE: HUANGLONGBING DETECTION IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY

A quarantine has been declared following the detection of the citrus disease Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening, in multiple residential citrus trees within the City of Corona, Riverside County.  The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Riverside County, Orange County, and San Bernardino County agricultural commissioners, and the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) are working collaboratively on this project.

The 107-square mile quarantine area will link up with the east side of the existing quarantine in Los Angeles, Riverside, Orange, and San Bernardino counties, creating a contiguous 1,127-square-mile area. The new portion is bordered on the north by Chino Airport, on the south by Black Star Canyon, and on the east by Interstate 15.  HLB quarantine maps are available online at: https://www.cdfa.ca.gov/plant/hlb/regulation.html.
