Health officials are currently taking steps to prevent the introduction and spread of COVID-19 (ÔÇťCoronavirusÔÇŁ) into communities across the United States. Housing providers, including organizations that run continuums of care and shelters, as well as the general public, can play an important role in this effort.
Through collaboration and coordination with State and local health departments, housing providers can disseminate critical information and prepare to take additional steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19, should State and local health officials identify such a need.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers the most up-to-date information on COVID-19. For updates from CDC, please visit the Coronavirus website.
