Coronavirus: More than 14,000 homeless Californians now in hotels

Good News Notes:

In an effort to get people off the streets and out of shelters during the coronavirus pandemic, the state has moved an estimated 14,200 homeless Californians into hotels and motels since April, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Tuesday.

The state has secured more than 15,670 rooms as part of its Project Roomkey initiative, surpassing the 15,000 goal originally set by the governor. Those rooms are set aside for unhoused residents who either test positive for COVID-19, have been exposed to the virus or may be more susceptible to the virus because of their age or underlying medical conditions.”
