We the undersigned believe that every human being deserves shelter from winter storms and a warm dry place to sleep at night. Warming centers provide an important last resort for people who might otherwise be subject to the wind and rain. We believe that no one should be left outside subject to exposure and possible hypothermia and encourage inclusivity and efforts to mediate issues which may interfere with the basic survival needs of at-risk populations. It is also important to be mindful that when people are closely congregated during winter months, colds, the flu and other infectious diseases pose a serious concern. Therefore, we endorse thoughtful efforts to instill best practices of cough hygiene among persons sharing indoor space and urge administrators and funding agencies to work with community health education projects.
