COVID-19 Homeless System Response: Alternative Approaches to Winter Sheltering During COVID-19 [open pdf - 209KB]
From the Document: "Due to the current community spread of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019], local facilities that are normally available to prevent death from exposure for people experiencing homelessness are now more limited. Houses of worship, recreation centers, and similar facilities heavily dependent on volunteers may not be options this upcoming winter season. The framework below provides a graduated approach to sheltering from life-threatening temperatures and regular seasonal weather. Coordination with local public health and emergency management partners is essential in design, resource investment, and staffing considerations."
