Hygiene kits handed out to homeless, probationers
SAN BERNARDINO – (INT) – An offensive against the coronavirus among the homeless is being mounted in San Bernardino County.
More than 200 hygiene kits were distributed last weekend in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 among the local homeless and probationers returning to the community.
About 40 probation officers, nurses, and homeless coordinators, spent several hours in the central region of the county.
The hygiene kits included a first aid kit, blanket, water, gloves, light sticks, masks, sanitizer, a toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, a washcloth, and socks.
The distribution was made possible under the Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding (CESF) Program provides federal funding to states, local governments, and tribes to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19.
