COVID-19

San Joaquin County recently declared a Local Public Health Emergency March 12, 2020 in order to assist in leveraging additional resources and funding to ensure an appropriate response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The County's public health response efforts will now focus on minimizing the impact of COVID-19 in the greater community. These actions are important steps to freeing up public health resources to protect the most vulnerable populations and allow our health care system to prepare for taking care of severely ill patients. San Joaquin County health officials urge residents to follow prevention guidelines for COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases and to visit this site often to review the latest news, information, community guidance and resources. It is important to note that San Joaquin County may have different guidance than the State or Federal government based on our unique needs. Visit http://www.sjready.org for more information.
