Universal COVID-19 Testing

at Homeless Service Sites

Introduction

The National HCH Council and its standing Research Committee have partnered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to collect data from universal testing events at shelter or encampment-based service sites during the COVID-19 pandemic. This effort supplements clinical testing of COVID-19 data presented by HRSA extracted to highlight health centers serving patients experiencing homelessness and housing instability.

Data collection is ongoing. If you have conducted a  universal testing event and your site is not represented on the dashboard, please add to the data collection tool here! We will  update these figures as new data emerge.

Together, we aim to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on this vulnerable group and to inform future public health actions.

Please note that the data in this dashboard is submitted voluntarily by jurisdictions and is not a comprehensive list of testing or vaccination events.

If you have questions about the survey or need assistance, please email eocevent366@cdc.gov.
