After spike in asymptomatic COVID-19 cases among homeless, state releases plan to help

“The announcement comes after Boston saw a spike in asymptomatic cases a few weeks ago. Those who tested positive at one of the shelters had made it through the facility’s strict COVID-19 pre-screening process. Jim O’Connell, president of Boston Health Care for the Homeless, said the discovery of a few cases granted officials the opportunity to test everyone in the shelter. There were between 140 and 150 positive cases.”
