The COVID-19 Isolation Hotel Program emerged as a public health intervention to mitigate current and prevent future community spread, as well as respond to social support needs of those exposed to COVID-19. Particularly, individuals who are homeless, living in crowded or congregate housing, or whose family and/or landlords decline to have them return out of fear of potential exposure to COVID-19. Isolation hotels offer a culturally competent supportive environment for continued recovery from exposure to COVID-19, as well as the protection of others in home environments from exposure to COVID-19. Our isolation hotels were founded on the premise that all suspected or confirmed COVID-19 positive individuals will require some modicum of physical, emotional, social, and family support to aid their recovery.
