We Need Guaranteed Housing in NC During the COVID-19 Pandemic

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


At this critical moment in history, we need our leaders to implement an aggressive health equity policy to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure every resident of North Carolina is able to achieve their best possible health outcome during this crisis. 

THIS CAN ONLY BE ACHIEVED IF NORTH CAROLINA GUARANTEES HOUSING FOR THE DURATION OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

It's not possible to practice social distancing and reduce the magnitude of the public health crisis unless everyone is safely and humanely housed. We shouldn’t wait for unhoused individuals to display symptoms of COVID-19 before securing safe housing for them. Doing so only ensures the wider spread of a virus that is twice as contagious as the seasonal flu and ten times more deadly.
