Business Navigator

The Sacramento County COVID-19 Collaborative provides education and information for small and minority-owned businesses that have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. We support business owners’ understanding of public health orders and industry-specific guidance related to COVID-19.
The Business Navigator program was established as a partnership of the Sacramento County Division of Public Health, Environmental Management Department, Economic Development and The Center at Sierra Health Foundation to assist small and minority-owned businesses in economically disadvantaged communities.

Case Investigator and Contact Tracer

Contact tracing is used by health departments to prevent the spread of infectious disease. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sacramento County COVID-19 Collaborative is reaching out to people in vulnerable communities who have tested positive for the virus to make sure they have the resources they need to stay safe – and to keep those people they have been in contact with safe. Contact tracing plays an important role in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
Our local Case Investigators and Contact Tracers are community members who are trained to help. When someone in the community tests positive for COVID-19, the Case Investigator makes sure that person can safely isolate, has important information and access to resources and services, and helps to identify people with whom they have been in close contact. The Contact Tracer works with these close contacts to document symptoms, refer them for testing according to established protocols, and connect them with resources so they can safely and effectively quarantine.

Resource Coordinator

Social distancing and self-isolation, while critical, are incredibly difficult for many people. Community members need healthy food, safe housing and paid leave to quarantine. The Sacramento County COVID-19 Collaborative has people who can help.
Our local Resource Coordinators accompany community members who have tested positive for COVID-19 and their contacts on their journeys to health and wellness. They connect them with social resources in their community so they can safely isolate and reduce spread of the virus. 
The Resource Coordinator works with contact tracers and community organizations to make sure individuals and families have what they need to follow COVID-19 self-isolation and quarantine protocols. They do this through health education, coaching and modeling and by reinforcing recommended health messages.
