[ARCHIVED] Safe Social Distancing Program in Finley Parking Lot Extended to Mid-November

News Flash_SSDP Mayor Update

The Safe Social Distancing Program (SSDP) in the Finley parking lot, which was slated to close by October 31, may be extended to mid-November. The City of Santa Rosa and its contracted homeless services provider, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Santa Rosa, were recently made aware of a potential COVID-19 exposure at the SSDP. Accordingly, the City has postponed the closure of the SSDP to prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. The City and Catholic Charities are working closely with the Sonoma County Department of Health Services which began testing on-site this week. Additionally, Catholic Charities is working with the individuals currently residing at the SSDP to ensure COVID-19 safety protocols are being followed. The City estimates the SSDP may close by mid-November barring unforeseen circumstances and will keep the community informed should this timeline change.
