COVID-19 SHELTER INFORMATION

SHELTER OPERATIONS- UPDATE MAY 20, 2020

Mayor Eric Garcetti has taken several emergency measures to help protect Angelenos and slow the spread of COVID-19 — including opening emergency shelter beds at City recreation centers. Shelter selections were based on ADA accessibility and geographic area with input from the Mayor’s Office and Council Offices.

Each shelter will be supported around the clock by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) and partners, which include the Salvation Army, First to Serve, and Hope for the Valley.

City recreation centers are currently not accepting new residents. Trailer sites at seven Recreation and Parks locations will continue to accept new residents.

Shelter Services:

  • LA County Public Health inspects all shelters and approves dormitory set-up to ensure compliance with social distancing requirements prior to opening. Thereafter, inspections are done twice a week at each shelter.
  • Scheduled daily visits to the residents at each shelter are done by LA County Public Health and LA County Mental Health.
  • All staff working at shelters are provided and required to wear personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as "PPE"- equipment worn to minimize exposure to health hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses (i.e., gloves, Tyvek coveralls, goggles, surgical face masks).
  • Each resident will be screened before entering the shelter. On-site nurse screening for symptoms of COVID-19, those that show signs of COVID-19 are not allowed to enter the facility.
  • Showers and PPE's are available for all registered residents.
  • Each resident will be provided a bed, blanket, and a 60-gallon storage bin to store their belongings.
  • Food will be provided for each resident.
  • Help triage needs for residents using onsite service providers and registered nurses.
  • Recreation and Parks Maintenance Team is responsible for the overall cleanliness of the facility. They wipe down high touch areas with disinfectant, clean and restock restrooms, keep the dormitory areas clean and remove trash from dining areas, restrooms, and common areas daily.
