CHAIR FLETCHER & COUNTY SUPPORT CALIFORNIA STATE OF EMERGENCY FOR MONKEYPOX

08/01/22

 

Nathan Fletcher, Chair of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, is supportive of the State of California’s decision tonight to declare a State of Emergency for Monkeypox, and committed the County of San Diego will continue to work with state and city leaders to deliver resources to protect the San Diego County community.

“Governor Newsom and our California Department of Public Health have put us in a position of strength when it comes to addressing Monkeypox outbreaks by declaring an emergency. Our County has been working with the community to distribute vaccines and information, and this action by the State will allow them to better support our County as we administer services. We are likely to align with the State in the coming days by making our own declaration.”
