COVID-19: Just Another Hit to the Homeless


Homelessness During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Health Editor’s Note: One of the precautionary tasks of preventing contracting or spreading COVID-19 is careful, thorough hand washing, done before touching your face, after touching anything that is not in your home, after touching surfaces where another person may have touched, etc. Hand washing should be done several times during the day. 

Imagine that you do not have the convenience of a sink, running water, or soap in order to carry out this essential task.  Or imagine that you are living in a homeless shelter and find that others who live there have tested positive.  How can those who test positive be isolated for the mandatory 14 days when shelters are not large enough to accommodate physical distancing in living quarters? In actuality isolation will be impossible to coronavirus will spread through the facility.  The COVID-19 pandemic has caused disruptions to Americans who have roofs over their heads…Imagine how much worse it is for the homeless to negotiate the pandemic world we now live in……Carol

  1. COVID-19 was the pretext for a total reset of the US economy, throwing thousands of small businesses into bankruptcy and tens of millions of Americans out of work. Not only are they facing eviction and homelessness, but they’ve also lost their health insurance. What out-of-work American can afford to pony-up to see a doctor when they’re sick? Most likely they’ll just add to the grim statistics: Drug abuse, alcoholism, and suicide.

    It’s so different in Canada. They are beating this thing. They aren’t running around without masks, hitting the bars and the beaches, and having COVID-19 parties like the Trumpsters here in the USA. And, they have socialized health care and a good social safety net.
