Testing for COVID-19 in Homeless Shelters & Encampments: Discussing CDC’s New Health Department Guidance & NHCHC’s Newest Issue Brief
(from event page) As capacity for COVID-19 testing grows in most communities, high-risk settings such as homeless shelters and encampments are increasingly being prioritized for universal testing events. New CDC guidance for health departments (to be released shortly) outlines factors that local and state agencies can use to further inform specific policies being developed for these venues.
A new National HCH Council issue brief provides lessons learned and testing strategies that HCHs in five cities have found to work successfully when conducting universal testing. Come to this discussion to hear about these new resources and bring your questions about testing in your community.
