Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Both BBC and PBS news did stories on homeless and corona yesterday.  My housemate works the Monday homeless lunch in downtown Boston at the Episcopal Cathedral.  They seem to be the only hot meal for the homeless still operating.  We'll see what happens next Monday but this week they did three rooms of about 25 people each with 5 foot spacing.  Fewer people came than usual.

Shelters have also adopted wider spacing which means fewer available beds.  I think there's one shower now available according to one homeless informant my housemate spoke to today.

This is going to be hell on the homeless, as if they didn't have enough hell already.

Stay safe, be well.  Thanks for all you're doing.
