Assemblywoman Cottie-Petrie Norris Statement Objecting to the Federal Government Using Fairview Development Center for Quarantine Site

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.”

Elected officials focused on the big issues facing Orange County cities now and in the future at a State of the County address Friday, with talk of homelessness, the opioid crisis, workforce development and adapting to California’s economic and climate future taking center stage at the Pacific City shopping center in Huntington Beach.

The emphasis was on how the gravest issues affecting local communities are interconnected.

“The first bill I passed into law was to address the opioid crisis,” said U.S. Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Laguna Beach). “It is not a Republican issue, it’s not a Democratic issue, it’s an American issue.”

The Orange County Health Care Agency reported in 2017 that the county had seen an 82% increase in overdose deaths since the turn of the millennium.
