[ARCHIVED] 1.21.21

Shelter intakes at the City-owned Samuel Jones Hall (SJH) Homeless Shelter are scheduled to resume Jan. 23. This date is two weeks after the last positive COVID-19 test finding at the shelter and follows 14 confirmed cases at the shelter beginning in mid-December. The City will also restart efforts to resolve encampments at Industrial Parkway, Prince Memorial Greenway, Jennings Park and throughout Santa Rosa. These efforts have been temporarily on-hold, while shelter beds have been unavailable at SJH and at the new SJH Annex — which was used as an isolation area during the COVID-19 cases at the shelter. The City plans to open the SJH Annex for its original purpose of providing up to 60 shelter beds by February 1st. As beds become available again at the shelter, and are opened at the annex, the City can restart efforts to resolve encampments within its Homeless Encampment Assistance Program and with special procedures amid COVID-19, and restrictions outlined in a preliminary federal court injunction.
