California's Project Roomkey is the first-in-the-nation initiative to secure hotel and motel rooms for people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The County of Alameda, CA - Government's Social Services Agency, Health Care Services Agency, General Services Agency, and the Alameda County Sheriff's Office have worked in close coordination with the California Department of Social Services to operationalize two emergency hotels in Oakland to serve unsheltered individuals in the County of Alameda.

Operation Comfort serves adults who are homeless and tested positive for COVID-19, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, or been exposed to COVID-19. Operation Safer Ground serves people who are homeless and over the age of 65 or otherwise at high risk and medically fragile.

Referrals are received from a network of dozens of agencies:http://www.acphd.org/media/562754/list-of-approved-referral-agencies-20200329.pdf
