Title

Consider recommendations regarding Ratification of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) COVID-19 Outreach Rapid Deployment Data Use Agreement, as follows:

 

a) Approve and ratify a COVID-19 Outreach Rapid Deployment Data Use Agreement with CDPH which the County’s Director of Emergency Services previously executed on June 8, 2021 pursuant to County Code Section 12-5(b) [“Emergency Management”] to gain access to COVID-19 data for use by the Public Health Department and Epidemiology Unit;

 

b) Authorize the County Public Health Director, or their designee, unless otherwise ordered by the Board of Supervisors, to continue using this COVID-19 Outreach Rapid Deployment Data Use Agreement as part of the County Public Health Department’s efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at no cost to the County;

 

c) Approve and authorize the Public Health Department Director, or designee, to approve additional “no cost” data use agreements with the California Department of Public Health for the years 2021 through 2026 for long-term COVID-19 response upon review and approval by the County Counsel’s Office, Risk Management, and the Auditor-Controller’s Office; and

 

d) Determine that the above activities are not a “Project” subject to California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) review per CEQA Guideline Section 15378(b)(5), since the recommended actions are organizational or administrative activities of government that will not result in direct or indirect physical changes in the environment.
