Homeless in Tucson seeing issues with viruse and help.

Many outreach programs closed to try to keep people from gathering. Shelters are readying for lockdown if a client comes in and found positive for COVID-19.

Those that can, have went to the desert.
It's getting rougher and scarier.

Bye, Bye Life. Pima county just got their first 2 cases of COVID-19. Soooo,...

Yes, some will think it's morbid. But when one of the people did work, but only out of state (one of the non hit states at that), I can be a little dark.

PCHD: second presumptive positive COVID-19 case in Pima County AZ.

I'm in deep dodo. Tucson is in Pima. What the heck are we homeless going to do?

"We do know this person traveled but to another state," Pima County Health Department Director Dr. Bob England said. "And not a state with a lot of transmission going on and not out of the country.

Reuters report: Coronavirus weighs on strained American system to care for homeless

"Coronavirus weighs on strained American system to care for homeless"


NEW YORK (Reuters) - Dexter Johnson often comes to the Bowery Mission to get a free meal, having struggled off and on with homelessness, but the 33-year-old New Yorker is thinking twice about sitting down in the crowded cafeteria and risking exposure to novel coronavirus.

Johnson, one of an estimated 550,000 people to go homeless on any given night in the United States, is worried crowds at the lunch service could expose him to a virus that has no vaccine.

“This is the type of thing where you need to stay away from other people,” he said from the Bowery Mission dining room, where volunteers have hung posters detailing ways to avoid catching or spreading the virus. “That’s hard to do.”

What about the homeless and COVID-19?

We can't just stay at home for 14 days. Getting masks are hard because of shortages. So is hand sanitizer.

The FLU is hitting hard as it is. Now this.

Guess in the Trump version of America, we should go off somewhere and die.

MANY a homeless person in Tucson are throwing their hands...

Up over the coronavirus.
Homeless population already know we are in the line of fire when it goes spreading. We already are suffering if we have the sniffles.
We can't afford anything to disinfect with. Many are being turned away from shelters if seem sick.

In this election year, this song seems to to take a little...

More meaning to me. We got to beat the orange one.

I see the big wholes in the safety net people rely on when things get bad getting bigger. People on the streets that should never have to be there in the first place.

We have got to win, 4 more years of the orange one and what I have a front row seat to will be worse.

Wow! Looks like we get some new faces around here since...

I was on.

Should I wait a little while before I start annoying them, or try doing it now?
