Weekly Update #33 August 17, 2021
On Wednesday I went to my first in person CSAC Conference. This was the end of the "New Supervisors Institute. I guess I'm not allowed to say I'm new anymore! I'm looking forward to being engaged and active in the CSAC programs and networking with other elected officials across the State. We know that these relationships are critical for rural communities to make sure that we get the most out of our limited funds.
I sat on a CSAC Panel on leading during a pandemic with Supervisor Williams, CEO Angelo, Assistant CEO Angle and Social Services Director Emery. One of the most important things that I have learned from the pandemic is that we all have to lead together and provide as much information to our residents as possible. Its very interesting when you go back and look at your work in retrospect. I'm grateful to Supervisor Williams for allowing me to work with him on the Covid response. We are not done. Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) | Mendocino County, CA
I listened virtually to the CSAC meeting on Homelessness. There will be more Project Homekey money in the future and I asked the question on social media if there are people that have opinions about what kind of homeless housing would be a great opportunity for Mendocino County? What kind of population would you want to target first? Would there be codes of conduct or expectations? What locations would be appropriate whether that be a vacant lot or an existing building?
Ok check it off my "To-Do" list. I have now officially visited Bowling Ball Beach! It really is beautiful and such a "Mendo Thing to Do"
Of course on Sunday I was working on my Agenda prep but before that I took a run at Lake Mendocino and it was way too hot and smoky. Make sure you take care of yourself and stay inside if you can while the weather is rough. I'll take my own advice next time.
Sunday night was the last night of Sunday's in the Park. It was a little different with wearing masks and not having a dance floor, instead people were instructed to dance with their social bubbles. I'm grateful that Mendocino County Public Health was on site to provide testing and vaccines for anyone that wanted them. I believe they did at least 15 vaccines. The easier we can make it for people to get vaccinated and tested the better!
On Monday I had my Strategic Plan Meeting with the consultants. I was surprised at how much the subject of the culture of the agency came up. I really think its impartitive that the Board of Supervisors step up in to a leadership role and make sure that the team understands that we certainly are providing policy direction but we are also working along side them.
I just happened to listen in to the MCOG Meeting. Most County related meetings can be found on YouTube at Mendocino County Video. If you love meetings like me you might enjoy it!
I attended the VOAD Meeting. The main topics were assessing the need for getting drinking water to residents that need it, how to get help to the victims of the Oak Fire and being prepared for PSPS

Covid: See summary, Hospital nearing capacity for ability to handle Covid patients. Mendocino County has a total of 18% available ICU beds across the whole County. Judson Howe from Adventist Health spoke about the peak capacity of Covid in our hospital system. Our hospital staff is fatigued. 85% of admissions are unvaccinated. Surgical cases have been restricted. Mr Howe encourages our community to please reconsider your thoughts on the vaccine to ease the strain on the hospital and the danger of having to delay surgeries for other individuals. Dr Coren says that there are more symptomatic children with Covid than in previous spikes. Vaccines are improving with 4,000 given in the last two weeks. Beyond the PH sites you can get the vaccine from your doctor or private pharmacies. Multiple agencies require vaccination status or submit to weekly testing. AH has about 95% vaccinated rate amongst doctors, and about 70-75% before mandate and that end date is the end of September. Vaccines offered at doctor appointments as well as in the Emergency Room if people are leaving.
