    • Description:
      This guidance is an update of shelters/plan-prepare-respond.html

      This interim guidance is based on what is currently known about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will update this interim guidance as needed, and as additional information becomes available.

      People experiencing homelessness are at risk for infection during community spread of COVID- 19. This interim guidance is intended to support response planning by emergency management officials, public health authorities, and homeless service providers, including overnight emergency shelters, day shelters, and meal service providers.

      COVID-19 is caused by a new coronavirus. We are learning about how it spreads,, how severe it is, and other features of the disease. Transmission of COVID-19 in your community could cause illness among people experiencing homelessness, contribute to an increase in emergency shelter usage, and/or lead to illness and absenteeism among homeless service provider staff.

      Early and sustained action to slow the spread of COVID-19 will keep staff and volunteers healthy, and help your organization maintain normal operations.
