Beginning June 1, the County of San Luis Obispo will turn its Oceano Coastal Dunes RV Park & Campground safe overnight parking program into a safe shower program to assist homeless individuals meet basic needs during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

The showers will operate daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Mavericks Campground, located within the Coastal Dunes RV Park & Campground, at 1001 Pacific Boulevard, Highway 1 in Oceano.

"Lack of access to showers increases the risk of developing diseases and can turn a relatively minor health problem into a serious illness,” said Dr. Penny Borenstein, County Health Officer. “This is especially true as we face COVID-19."

Parking for showers will be limited to 30 minutes. Participants must agree to abide by site rules, including physical distancing (maintaining at least six feet from other people at the site), respectful behavior, and no drug use.  Park staff will perform regular cleaning and disinfection of the shower facilities. Campground and County Rangers will monitor the sites and will be available for urgent matters.

The safe shower program will end upon the beginning of Stage 3 reopening under the State’s Resilience Roadmap.

The County began offering the safe parking program in March to provide homeless individuals and families with access to safe, clean spaces to park and sleep overnight. The safe parking program continues to operate in Los Osos and San Luis Obispo.

Empezando el 1 de junio, el Condado de San Luis Obispo convertirá el Programa Nocturno de Estacionamiento Seguro localizado en el Oceano Coastal Dunes RV Park & Campground al Programa de Duchas Seguras para asistir a personas sin hogar con necesidades básicas durante la Pandemia de Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19).

Las duchas operarán diariamente de 8 a.m. a 6 p.m. en el Campamento Mavericks, localizado dentro del Coastal Dunes RV Park & Campground, en el 1001 Pacific Boulevard, Highway 1 en Océano. 

“Falta de acceso a duchas aumenta el riesgo de desarrollar enfermedades y puede convertir un problema de salud menor a una enfermedad seria,” dijo la Dra. Penny Borenstein, Oficial de Salud del Condado.  “Esto es especialmente cierto mientras enfrentamos el COVID-19.”

Estacionamiento para las duchas será limitado a 30 minutos.  Participantes deben aceptar seguir las reglas del lugar, incluyendo distanciamiento físico (mantener por lo menos seis pies de distancia de otras personas en el sitio), conducta respetuosa, y ningún uso de drogas.  Personal del parque limpiará y desinfectará las duchas de la facilidad.  Guardias del campamento y del condado vigilarán estos sitios y estarán disponibles para asuntos urgentes. 

El programa de duchas seguras terminará al comienzo de la Fase 3 de Reapertura bajo la Guía de Resiliencia del Estado. 

El Condado empezó ofreciendo el Programa de Estacionamiento Seguro en marzo a personas sin hogar para proveer acceso a un lugar seguro, y limpio donde estacionarse y dormir durante la noche.  El Programa de Estacionamiento Seguro continúa operando en Los Osos y San Luis Obispo.
