Businesses Still Can’t Reopen But Biden Admin Allows Migrant Shelters To Operate At Full Capacity

CDC lets child migrant shel­ters fill to 100% despite COVID concern

The Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol is allow­ing shel­ters han­dling child migrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico bor­der to expand to full capac­i­ty, aban­don­ing a require­ment that they stay near 50% to inhib­it the spread of the coro­n­avirus, Axios has learned.

Why it mat­ters: The fact that the country’s pre­mier health advi­so­ry agency is per­mit­ting a change in COVID-19 pro­to­cols indi­cates the scale of the immi­gra­tion cri­sis. A draft memo obtained by Axios con­ced­ed “facil­i­ties should plan for and expect to have COVID-19 cases.”

– The doc­u­ment goes on to rec­om­mend detailed ways to pre­vent the spread of the coro­n­avirus in shelters.
