The novel coronavirus has reached every state in the U.S. As testing becomes more widely accessible, it is inevitable that more cases will be reported and the burden on the health care system will continue to increase. People experiencing homelessness are especially susceptible to COVID-19, and the Council is working to keep the Health Care for the Homeless community up to date with the latest information from the field and a continuously updated resources page.

The COVID-19 Town Hall & Coffee Chat series consists of twice-weekly one-hour sessions with presenters from the HCH front lines bringing health care providers and homeless advocates a chance to hear best practices, ask questions, and engage in discussions on this fast-moving pandemic.
