Seattle's Shelter Response During COVID-19
Seattle's Shelter Response During COVID-19

COVID-19 has forced us to take unprecedented measures to help stop the spread of the deadly disease. One group especially vulnerable is the homeless population. The City of Seattle, under Mayor Durkan, has moved swiftly to protect these residents by opening seven new shelter locations. The added shelter capacity has helped re-distribute homeless residents, enabling them to use social distancing to stay healthy. For updated information please go to seattle.gov/mayor/covid-19.
