ABSTRACT

COVID-19 Intervention Actions: Supporting Individuals Experiencing Homelessness   [open pdf - 156KB]

From the Overview: "The spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in U.S. communities presents unique challenges for people experiencing homelessness. As nationwide mitigation efforts for COVID-19 are implemented, strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within the homeless population - which already experiences increased risks and challenges for disease prevention (e.g. limitations to frequent handwashing, crowding in shelters) - should be considered. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) provide policy and programmatic guidance and resources for homeless and housing services across the country, as well as coordinate housing and the care of homeless people."
