Day 7: Social support network.
Many of us have friends or family we can call on in an emergency. They might provide us with financial support, or food, or are simply there for us if we need someone to talk to. Unsheltered people need the same thing.

Image description: A group of people wearing masks sit in a semi-circle, each 2 metres apart. Quoted text from Unsheltered testimonies reads: This distancing, social distancing, does not apply at all for the homeless when they have nowhere to go. Nowhere to sleep and left behind. The only thing that keeps them alive is closeness. A hug. A hug is the way they offer moral support to each other. It is literally a matter of life and death."

We’re excited to announce a fourth metric added to our COVID warning system: contact tracing.
This metric is in addition to the other three warning systems metrics we look at for every state: case growth, testing capacity, and ICU safety margin.
Contact tracing aims to identify and alert people who have come into contact with a person infected with COVID.
Experts recommend tracing contacts of someone who tests positive for COVID within 48 hours, to contain the potential of transmission.
