Discusses how the lack of housing or stable housing creates health inequities and is an extreme risk for contracting and spreading COVID-19. It also discusses how homelessness increased during the pandemic due to loss of jobs and people released from incarceration. Many of these people experiencing this moved in with friends and family thus putting that group of people at risk for contracting and spreading the disease as well. —Clare Petrie, NCEAS
