California Housing the Homeless!

This is part of an effort to move people out of crowded shelters and off the streets. It has been dubbed project room key. This effort and initiative has acquired more than 16,000 hotel rooms across California in order to help the homeless population. With these efforts they are hoping to prevent spikes of infection within the California homeless population.
