a) Approve and ratify an Emergency Occupancy Agreement between the County of Santa Barbara and the Best Western Plus Encina Inn and Suites located in Southern Santa Barbara County for isolation and quarantine of suspected and confirmed COVID-19 persons in response to the COVID-19 pandemic;

 

b) Authorize the Public Health Director, or designee, until otherwise ordered by the Board, to continue utilizing the Emergency Occupancy Agreement to provide isolation and quarantine in response to the COVID-19 pandemic for payments due under Section 4 in an amount not to exceed $70,000.00; and
