This webinar is hosted by National Association of Counties
The COVID-19 crisis underscores the need for the systemic changes to our social safety net for long-term upward mobility, particularly for vulnerable populations such as unhoused populations. Addressing the public health needs of unhoused populations (to include access to testing and ability/safe place to quarantine, among others) is an integral component of containing the spread of an infectious disease, particularly airborne illnesses without population level herd immunity. Understanding the potential impact of a localized outbreak in unhoused and housing unstable populations further underscores the urgency of addressing access to housing beyond economics, but toward preserving the health of our communities. Join us in learning about the intersection of economic security, public health and housing and about how counties can respond in the face of a public health and economic shock.
