From the Introduction: "This document provides an overview of necessary changes to normal shelter operations in order to provide a safe and effective shelter where there is COVID-19 [coronavirus disease]. Additional job tools and tactical guidance to support this document may be released subsequently Opening and operating shelters in a COVID-19 environment requires an adjustment to standard procedures in order to support the safety of clients and workers. [1] Shelters will continue to provide a safe space for clients impacted by a disaster or other event. [2] Adjustments should always follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance and best practices to protect clients and workers from contracting and spreading COVID-19. In all sheltering environments, whether providing sheltering in hotels or congregate facilities, it is important to maintain contact with public health and emergency management before, during, and after shelter operations."
