ALERT! More rooms needed as homeless Californians quarantine in hotels amid pandemic!
[link to ktla.com (secure)]


Anxiety mounted every time someone at the homeless shelter sneezed or residents got too close. For Matthew Padilla, a 34-year-old with a pacemaker and asthma, catching the novel coronavirus would likely mean death.

So he jumped at the chance to move into a hotel room for free as part of a new California program. Within days, he and his husband, Nito, were in a room near Los Angeles’ Koreatown, where meals are delivered along with health screenings.

“At the shelter I was constantly getting up, checking on him,” said Nito Padilla, 36. “And here I know he’s safe. I know he’s OK.”

The Padillas are among roughly 7,000 people in California who have been moved out of shelters, vehicles and rough streets to ride out the pandemic in hotels, an effort Gov. Gavin Newsom announced in March to shield some of the state’s 150,000 estimated vulnerable homeless.

Newsom has praised the progress, although counties are still struggling to acquire rooms and squabbles have developed in some cities. Local officials say the process has been complicated as they find appropriate hotels, negotiate leases and get staffing in place. It’s something counties have never done at this scale.

Rumors abound that Piglosi will mandate every home owner voluntarily offer up at minimum one bedroom of their personal residence!

So far Cali has placed 7000 homeless into rooms with an estimated 150,000 homeless on the streets! After 3 months only 7000 have been placed?!? Only 143,000 to go.1rof1

Love how they state for free. Nothing is free. Bet our taxes will be going up even more here in CA next year or the year after. Out of control
