ACS at SSU

April 24, 2020

The County of Sonoma has partnered up with Sonoma State University and Petaluma Health Center to establish an alternate care site, or ACS, at the university in order to ensure there is adequate space at local hospitals should there be a surge in Sonoma County coronavirus cases in the coming weeks.

The Recreation Center gyms will be used for COVID-19-positive patients with mild- to moderate symptoms, while the residential units will be used for those who are awaiting test results for COVID-19.

Petaluma Health Center will operate the center designed to accommodate some 580 patients in the Recreation Center of the Rohnert Park campus and in a portion of Sonoma State's housing area. Capacity can be increased if needed.
