Saturday, February 22, 2020

COSTA MESA – Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris (AD-74) has issued the following statement regarding the potential use of Costa Mesa’s Fairview Developmental Center as a treatment center for COVID-19 patients being transferred out of Travis Airforce Base (AFB). 

“My number one priority is the health and safety of our community,” said Petrie-Norris. “We recently learned that the federal government is evaluating a number of potential secondary sites for COVID-19 patients, including the Fairview Developmental Center in Costa Mesa. Given its proximity to a densely populated urban community, I object strongly to the Fairview Developmental Center being selected by federal authorities for this purpose. We urge federal authorities to designate a more appropriate site.”
