What is IsoCare?  

Our mission is to decrease the spread of Covid-19 by supporting people who have the virus (or are awaiting test results) and have been asked to self-isolate at home, and for their families to quarantine. We offer telephone education, problem solving, and support to help clients and families adhere to this difficult request. IsoCare uses repeated contact to build connection and provide motivation, so that Covid-19 sufferers can do this right and keep their household members and the community safer.   

  

IsoCare was formed in late March by a local family physician and a handful of volunteers. While the trajectory of the pandemic was impossible to predict then, the need was clear: IsoCare augments the work that the overextended Public Health Department and Community Health Centers are already doing and helps link clients to the many community organizations trying to help. Since IsoCare calls patients while they are awaiting test results, we reach clients during the key infectious time and before public health is aware of them.  

For our first 5 months IsoCare was 100% volunteer run. We are now poised to turn towards making the organization sustainable and equipped for the long run, and have hired 6 part-time staff. IsoCare is a successful, growing program which has supported over 400 clients per month through isolation/quarantine, and has trained over 150 volunteers.   

  

What problem do we solve?  

People who have Covid-19, show Covid-19 symptoms and have been tested, or have been exposed to Covid-19 all need to be able to self-isolate in their homes so that they don’t infect others. But this is easier said than done! What about getting food? What about other family members? Do they have a private bedroom and bathroom that others in the household don’t need to use? Is a household member going to work at your Coffee Shop or your favorite local restaurants? The problem is especially acute in working-class communities where family members need to continue to go to work to put food on the table and working from home is an unattainable luxury. It is not by chance that around 75% of the cases in Sonoma County are in the Latinx community.   

   

Why do we need money and where will it go?  

For the first 5 months IsoCare was a completely volunteer-run organization. We have received limited funding and now have 6 part-time staff who oversee day-to-day operations of the organization and perform IsoCare support calls and follow-up. We continue to depend on a steadfast volunteer team who also make the support and education calls. We are working with the County and Community Health Centers to increase the number of clients we serve many-fold, and will need to increase our staff as we do.  

  

Our goal is to expand to serve more people in Sonoma County as the need for support continues and more health centers and other providers become aware of our effort. We are also pursuing expansion of the IsoCare model to the regions across California and have already received calls from multiple other counties across the state seeking our input.
