The 2022 Monterey County Stand Down Clinic will be held on June 17-18, 2022, at the Monterey County Fairgrounds: 2004 Fairgrounds Road, Monterey, CA. This clinic is specifically for homeless veterans. All services are free and are offered on a first come, first served basis on the day of services as capacity allows. Veteran ID is required. Services are provided at the discretion of the healthcare provider. For more information on the Monterey County Stand Down event, please visit their website at: Home (montereystanddown.org).
All volunteers must create a volunteer profile in our system before signing up to volunteer for a clinic; this can be done at any time. Clinic registration opens 6-8 weeks before the clinic date.
COVID-19 CLINIC PROCEDURES
California CareForce takes seriously our responsibility to our volunteers, staff, and patients to put into place safety procedures to our clinic services. These changes may impact an individual’s ability to receive care. While our clinic flow and requirements may look different during this time, we assure you we will continue to provide quality healthcare to as many people as possible, while also practicing new and necessary safety procedures as a result of COVID-19.
If you have symptoms of any respiratory infection (e.g., cough, runny nose, fever), you must not attend a California CareForce clinic, and must take appropriate preventive actions (e.g., wear a facemask while in the presence of others).
Safety procedures will include:
All patients will be required to have completed a full COVID-19 vaccination series (with booster if possible) prior to receiving care at any California CareForce Clinic – please bring proof of vaccination with you to the clinic.
If a patient has not been vaccinated, the patient must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 24 hours of clinic service (limited COVID-19 testing will be available at the California CareForce clinic).
All patients will undergo a COVID-19 screening (questionnaire and temperature check) upon entering the clinic. Patients with positive COVID-19 symptoms will not enter the clinic and will be referred within the county for follow-up care.
All patients are required to wear a California CareForce-specified face covering (N95) at all times except while receiving dental treatment and/or medical examination (California CareForce will provide N95 masks for all patients receiving services).
Only those receiving services will be allowed to enter the clinic. Other family members, or children, not receiving services will not be permitted within the clinic, (except for caregivers, or parents and/or legal guardian accompanying a child under 18 years of age).
Other safety procedures like social distancing, distancing between services, and outside patient waiting will also be set in place.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary to postpone some of our upcoming clinics. Please continue to check our schedule regularly for updates. The above details are subject to change.
