On July 1, the California Department of Public Health and the Emergency Medical Services Authority deactivated the Medical and Health Coordination Center, which was activated in response to the April 2019 measles outbreak. Local health jurisdictions are no longer required to submit weekly situation reports and cost tracking related to the outbreak. Instead, they should follow the defined response protocols in the Public Health and Medical Emergency Operations Manual.
