In response to the State of Emergency declared on March 4, 2020 due to the Corona virus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, San Bernardino County Children and Family Services (CFS) in collaboration with the Department of Behavioral Health (DBH), Department of Public Health (DPH), the Office of Emergency Services (OES) and Human Services (HS) Facilities established an Isolation Quarantine Shelter (IQS). The IQS was implemented July 2020 and aimed to ensure that detained or dependent children/youth testing positive for COVID-19 adhered to the United States (U.S.) Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance to contain and mitigate the adverse consequences of COVID-19 by isolating infected dependent children/youth in a safe environment.
