From what I understand at this point, there is little likelihood of there being an adequate amount of spaces in time, should the city be forced to go on lockdown. I feel this is likely and not far off and fear for there individuals.
Can City offer a portion of Victoria park as being permitted, until further actions are in place to meet full need by Region, for tent set up by individuals who will not access the shelters? I am thinking clock tower field or the island. Access no longer permitted to others on the temp. Region tells me its City call to make.
We know there are such people, have for some time. Tent Cities have been repetitive among our area in the past. If allowed and garbage cans are provided, this location is proximate to the current connection points downtown for all services (bathrooms, CTS, food). Can minimize migration distance to access if placed elsewhere, hidden, as is the current likelihood (and I know IS happening). Allowing it reduces increase of spread via reduction of contact likelihood via travel. Also allows similar drop set up for food as households if need be as this progresses for food if the current is shut down before all can be sheltered.
And is the humane intermittent solution.
