The Santa Barbara County Health Officer updated Health Officer Order No. 2020-14.3 requiring temperature screening, self-evaluation, and reporting of COVID-19 cases at all homeless shelters and H-2A housing in the County of Santa Barbara. This Order is effective starting at 5:00 p.m. (PDT) November 11, 2020, continuing until 5:00 p.m. (PDT), on December 19, 2020 or until it is extended, rescinded, superseded, or amended in writing by the Santa Barbara County Health Officer.

The updated order stipulates the following:

  1. All individuals entering or residing in a homeless shelter or H-2A housing shall be screened for COVID-19 symptoms daily.
  2. If through daily screening an individual or resident has symptoms related to COVID-19, the individual must immediately self-isolate and notify the manager, operator, owner of the facility, or employer.
  3. The operator, manager, owner of homeless shelters or the employer providing H-2A housing must immediately notify the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department when there is one case of confirmed COVID-19 in the homeless shelter or H-2A housing.

In addition, the Health Officer strongly recommends that homeless shelters and H-2A housing utilize stable groups to reduce potential transmission of COVID-19 in these types of housing.
