Venues are being sourced to cohort Covid positive and Covid negative people safely

Many day centres and night shelters are closing down due to concerns about the staff safety, staff shortages and clients not being able to effectively self-isolate
Current government strategy is to move everyone from the street and to eventually close all winter night shelters
People who are homeless need to be able to safely self-isolate to reduce transmission risks
Local systems must immediately plan to provide multiple venues to cohort and care for homeless people who are COVID-19 positive and to protect people who are COVID-19 negative
In order to manage people who are COVID-19 positive venues must identify spaces where people can self-isolate, with access to adequate water, food and sanitation.
