Medical / Health

The Department of Health Services continues to lead key COVID-19 policy and response efforts including developing and managing data regarding community impacts, developing and managing Public Health Officer orders, assessing guidance, models and data relevant to reopening planning, supporting development of community information and education, advising on community and organizational health protective measures, conducting community testing and surveillance, addressing vulnerable individuals in the homeless community and establishing and managing and the Alternate Care Site. 

Business Reopening and Economic Recovery

County staff and allied stakeholder organizations have been working as part of the new Business Recovery Task Force Workgroups.  The Workgroups and other stakeholders have supported development of additional Best Management Practices to support the safe operation of various businesses and industries during the COVID-19 pandemic. These are now available at the SoCo Launch website.  Economic Development is working to finalize a Full Roadmap to Reopening Plan, which will include Self-Certification resources.  

Emergency Management / Public Information

The Department of Emergency Management continues to support COVID-19 response and preparedness for a potential increase in infection rates or a second wave of infection.  Staff continue to support the County’s Continuity of Operations Program (COOP) and lead the Food Resources Task Force.   Staff is working to participate in the State of California’s program that will offer some Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) items to businesses that are deemed by the State as essential. 

Emergency Management is executing its Concurrent Hazard Preparedness Project to assess existing and revise response plans, complete and publish the After Action Reports for the 2019 Power Shutoffs and Kincade Fire, and simultaneously review COVID-19 response efforts to date in order to identify quick-turn improvements that can be immediately implemented.  In July and August, Emergency Management will engage Operational Area stakeholder organizations via a series of virtual workshops and TTXs to review and reinforce readiness for wildfires and power shutoffs. 

The County’s Public Information Officers are continuing to partner with Health Services to share consistent, coordinated messaging with the community.  Regular video updates from both Chair Gorin and Dr. Mase continue including Spanish language versions of each.   Staff are also maintaining the SoCoEmergency.org, SoCoEmergencia.org, and the Virtual Local Assistance Center websites.   The Public Information Team is also continuing to expand efforts for LatinX community outreach, engagement, and education.
