Delivering Health Care in Isolation and Quarantine Facilities for People Experiencing Homelessness
Association of Clinicians for the Underserved and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
People experiencing homelessness face unique challenges in the new COVID-19 environment. Staying in congregate facilities and living on the streets puts this population at increased risk of infection, and higher rates of chronic disease increase the risk of complication and death. Many cities are establishing isolation and quarantine facilities in motels, convention centers, and in other settings to mitigate and manage the spread of COVID-19 among homeless residents. Join us to hear about workforce strategies for delivering care in these settings and best practices in service delivery.
