Now, approximately two years later, we know much more about COVID-19 safety pre-cautions and have resources to reduce transmission through vaccination. Many shelter providers are asking – when and how should we safely increase our shelter capacity again?
In this webinar, health professionals from Pima County Health Department will discuss:
Safety precautions and considerations to increase shelter capacity in congregate settings including dorm style shelter and room/unit-sharing in non-congregate units.
Risk planning for COVID-19 and other infectious disease outbreaks in shelter settings.
Tools to help shelter providers know when it’s the “right time” to increase shelter bed capacity.
Upcoming opportunities to host vaccination/booster events for shelter program participants.
This webinar will include significant time for discussion and questions. Emergency shelter program leadership and staff are especially encouraged to attend.
