The Sheriff’s Office will continue to work closely with Santa Barbara County Public Health and our Wellpath partners to safely care for the health of both our inmates and our staff. All staff who enter the Main Jail are tested daily and our protocols for COVID-19 inmate intake and screening will remain in place.
