Citizens who are dealing with poverty and homelessness are at particularly high risk for infection.  After all, how do you self-isolate when you depend on soup kitchens for food?

And what does it mean to socially distance, or shelter in place, when your place is a single bed in a space shared with hundreds of others?   

Kevin Lindamood, president and CEO of Health Care for the Homeless, joins Tom to discuss COVID-19 challenges for those without shelter.

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
