One of the populations most at risk for the coronavirus is the homeless. Most of those living on the streets lack a way to wash their hands frequently; many also have underlying health issues. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requires counties to survey their homeless population annually to better assess their needs in general and determine how much to allocate for services. KRCB’s Adia White reports on this year’s count.
On Tuesday, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors is scheduled to narrow down a list of new potential indoor-outdoor shelter sites to two or three. For updates on housing and homeless, visit norcalpublicmedia.org
