Title

Consider recommendations regarding a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) Between the California Government Operations Agency and the County of Santa Barbara for COVID-19 Vaccines, as follows:

 

a) Approve and ratify an MOU, between the California Government Operations Agency and the County of Santa Barbara, governing COVID-19 vaccine allocation and administration, which the County’s Director of Emergency Services previously executed on March 19, 2021 pursuant to County Code Section 12-5(b) [“Emergency Management”];

 

b) Authorize the County Public Health Director, or their designee, unless otherwise ordered by the Board of Supervisors, to continue using this MOU as part of the County Public Health Department’s efforts to provide voluntary COVID-19 vaccinations to mitigate the continued spread of COVID-19; and

 

c) Determine that the above recommended actions are not a “Project” with the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and are exempt per CEQA Guideline section 15378(b)(4), since the recommended actions are government fiscal activities which do not involve commitment to any specific project which may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment.
