HEALTHCARE WORKFORCE LODGING RESOURCES
The Non-Congregate Sheltering (NCS) for California Healthcare Workers Program was created to keep California’s healthcare workers safe and healthy and reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. It provides hotel rooms to healthcare workers who give critical care to COVID-19 patients, so they don’t bring home the virus to their household. Once they leave their shift, they can stay near their healthcare facility at a participating hotel for free or at a discount.
Effective January 12, 2021, the program is making a major change to the reservation process. To meet the criteria established by the Hotels for Healthcare Workers (HFHCW) program, all certified health care facilities are required to assign a designated point of contact to assist and oversee the reservation process; to serve as the approver for all lodging reservations, and to submit and/or approve all hotel reservation requests.
