COVID-19 Guidance and Resources

Sonoma County Covid-19 Management of Healthcare Personnel - Updated Guidance

Sonoma Public Health continues to work closely with local, state and federal agencies and healthcare partners to monitor COVID-19. At the outset, initial efforts were directed towards containment, which required us to identify cases and test suspect cases as warranted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance. Now that community spread of COVID-19 is occurring, Sonoma Public Health has changed its response from a containment approach to a mitigation approach. As a service to our providers, this guidance incorporates the latest information/guidance from CDC as well as other sources. As the situation evolves, this guidance may change.

 For more information, call the Sonoma Public Health warm-line at (707) 565-4567.
