In light of the increasing coronavirus reports, please see the following link to up-to-date resources compiled and developed by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, including information on shelter health as it relates to the current coronavirus pandemic.
Here is a new ABC News article to which we contributed significantly to help raise awareness of the risk of COVID-19 to people without homes. “Coronavirus and the Homeless: Why They’re Especially at Risk, Ways to Stop a Spread ‘Like Wildfire.’”
A webinar was hosted on March 20 highlighting what some Health Care for the Homeless health centers are doing in their shelters to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Additional information and resources can also be found in our special Solidarity newsletter on COVID-19.”
