The California Department of Social Services (CSDSS) secured two hotels to provide isolation housing immediately for people experiencing homelessness affected by COVID-19. CDSS contracted with Abode Services to provide wraparound support and with the hotel owners for operations staffing. Alameda County Health Care Services, Social Services, and General Services Agencies worked together to establish referral procedures, medical screening and support, and transportation resources for the sites.

ACPD COVID-19 Communication
March 16, 2020
To our Probation Clients, Partners and our Community,
The ACPD Executive team, staff and our county governmental partners have been working tirelessly to ensure we do everything possible to keep our community safe during this unprecedented time. We have deployed our Emergency Operations Center (EOC), ensuring that we are poised to act as quickly as possible in order to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We are implementing temporary changes in our daily operations and will continue to do so as this emergency unfolds.
We have suspended all non-state and non-federally mandated fieldwork immediately until further notice. We are continuing to conduct services on an as needed basis, taking into consideration youth and adults with special needs. We are providing staff with direction on safe client interactions due to this pandemic as well as working to accommodate anyone impacted by this developing situation.
Facilities and maintenance staff are increasing the cleaning of common areas in our offices. Hand sanitizers have been provided and will continue to be replenished throughout the Department. It is our goal to keep our probation community safe to the extent possible. Here are steps staff and the community can take to protect yourself and others:
- Practice physical distancing (also referred to as social distancing).
- Wash your hands often with liquid soap and water and rub for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a disposable tissue, if available.
- Stay home from work if you are ill. Consult your personal physician if you have a fever. Remain off work until you have been fever-free for at least 24 hours.
- Keep sick family members at home until symptoms resolve.
- Get your flu shot to protect against flu or symptoms like COVID-19.
- If you are going to travel, check the CDC’s Traveler’s Health Notices for the latest guidance and recommendations for each country to which you travel.
