ABSTRACT

Mass Care and Shelter Guidance for Local Governments in a Communicable or Infectious Diseases Environment   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Introduction: "On January 26, 2020, California realized its first case of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). California Governor Gavin Newsom declared a State of Emergency on March 4, 2020 due to COVID-19. On March 13, 2020, President Donald Trump declared a National Emergency. The Governor also announced a statewide, stay-at-home order on March 19, 2020 intended to flatten the spike in the number of confirmed cases and deaths, thereby buying time to fight the disease. These unprecedented measures have resulted in business closures, travel restrictions, supply shortages, and enhanced safety measures. Traditional mass care and sheltering operations now face potential limitations as a result of a communicable or infectious disease."
