ASILOMAR ALTERNATE CARE SITE
On Tuesday, March 10, the California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) made a determination to relocate a small group of individuals from the Grand Princess cruise ship to the Asilomar Conference Center in Pacific Grove, a facility that is both State-owned and operated. As of March 11, none of these individuals are known to have contracted novel coronavirus (COVID-19), and they will be tested and monitored by medical professionals while at Asilomar. All aspects of the State quarantine effort at Asilomar Conference Center are being controlled and/or operated by State or Federal agencies and their respective personnel. No City of Pacific Grove or Asilomar Conference Center employees are involved or exposed to the State quarantine effort. The Center for Disease Control is an integral part of the State quarantine effort at Asilomar Conference Center, ensuring proper protocols are being followed.
