ABSTRACT

Homelessness During COVID-19: Understanding and Preventing Risk of Virus Spread in This Vulnerable Population   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "On any given night in the U.S., over half a million individuals experience homelessness. Shelters are often a place of respite and relief for homeless individuals. Yet, amidst the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, shelters have become a breeding ground for transmission of COVID-19. The high concentration of individuals staying in close quarters, such as shelters, and lack of facilities and supplies necessary to practice proper hygiene can lead to rapid yet poorly monitored transmission of coronavirus."
