Ventura County Issues H-2A Housing Order

On Friday, the Ventura County Health Officer issued a new order requiring temperature screening, self-evaluation and reporting of COVID-19 cases at all homeless shelters and H-2A housing in Ventura County.

The new order stipulates the following:

  • All individuals entering or residing in a homeless shelter of H-2A housing shall be screened for COVID-19 symptoms daily.
  • If through daily screening an individual or resident has symptoms related to COVID-19 the individual must immediately self-isolate and notify the manager, operator, owner of the facility or employer.
  • The operator, manager, owner of homeless shelters or the employers providing H-2A housing must immediately notify the Ventura County Public Health Department when there is one case of confirmed COVID-19 in the homeless shelter or H-2A housing at (805) 981-5201.
