Friday, February 28, 2020 | Update from Ventura County Public Health
English Version
Spanish Version
COVID-19 is NOT currently spreading in the community in Ventura County, and immediate risk to the general public in Ventura County is low. 

Tuesday, February 25, 2020 | Ventura County Public Health Doctor Levin provided an update today about the Novel Coronavirus and quarantine effort. He explains that no sick individuals will be sent to NBVC-Point Mugu. Sick individuals identified during an LAX screening, will be hospitalized in Los Angeles, not Ventura County. Quarantine is for individuals who MAY have been exposed to the virus, but do not have any symptoms of the virus. If any quarantined individuals who are sent to NBVC-Point Mugu become ill, they will be sent to a regional hospital equipped to treat COVID-19 virus. More information is expected to be released during a press conference that is currently being coordinated between Ventura County, U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, and the Center for Disease Control.

Monday, February 24, 2020 | Report #5 (February 24, 2020)

February 23, 2020 | Statement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on potential use of Naval Base Ventura County – Point Mugu for quarantine : The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), working closely with the Department of Defense and other federal partners, is taking all reasonable steps to address an evolving public health emergency. As part of that effort, Naval Base Ventura County (NBVC) - Point Mugu may receive American travelers coming through Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) who, in an abundance of caution, would be quarantined to be monitored for symptoms of COVID-19 based solely on their travel history. Any travelers housed at the Base would be monitored for signs of infection and transferred to appropriate medical facilities if symptoms developed. The Department of Defense has made sites available around the country to house such travelers, and NBVC-Point Mugu was one site determined to be suitable for travelers requiring quarantine. At this time, HHS is preparing this site should it be needed in the rapidly evolving public health response. Any actions that HHS takes, working with federal, state, tribal and local partners to address this public health emergency, are being done in a way that protects both those quarantined and other citizens as well. Imported cases of COVID-19 from a small number of travelers have been detected in the U.S. but this virus is NOT currently spreading in U.S. communities and the immediate risk of this new virus to the American public is believed to be low at this time.
