Federal Policy Updates  CDC

May 15, 2020 - Homeless service provider sites (such as sites for overnight emergency shelters, day shelters, and meal service providers) can present unique challenges for COVID-19 investigation and public health action. Because homeless service provider sites can be crowded settings, the virus may spread easily. Additionally, clients at homeless service provider sites are often older adults or have underlying medical conditions, making it more likely for them to have severe illness from COVID-19. To help prepare homeless service providers to prevent spread of the virus that causes COVID-19, review CDC guidance specific to homeless service providers and people experiencing homelessness. The following considerations are for public health response to cases at homeless service provider sites, which is not outlined in the other guidance documents.

Federal Policy Updates  CDC

May 15, 2020 - Community- and faith-based organizations (CFBOs), working together with schools, businesses, healthcare systems, and state, local, tribal, and territorial health departments, have an important role in slowing the spread of diseases, especially among high risk populations.

Guidance for CFBOs is organized into three categories based on the level of community transmission: 1) when there is no community transmission (preparedness phase), 2) when there is minimal to moderate community transmission, and 3) when there is substantial community transmission. Guidance is also provided for what to do when a person who is a confirmed COVID-19 case has been in your facility, regardless of the level of community transmission.

All decisions about implementing these strategies (e.g., alteration or reduction of services, event cancellations, other social distancing measures) should be made locally, in collaboration with local health officials who can help determine the level of transmission in the community.
