State-issued trailers arrive at Cal Expo to help at-risk Californians during COVID-19 crisis


Sacramento, Calif. April 3 (Punjab Mail USA) – The first batch of state-issued trailers, which will enable at-risk people to self-quarantine during the COVID-19 crisis, have arrived at Cal Expo. These trailers are part of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s $150 million funding plan to protect vulnerable populations, including people experiencing homelessness, and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.

  Approximately two dozen RV-style trailers have been placed at Cal Expo, with more arriving in the coming days. Sacramento is expected to receive a total of 63 trailers from the state, which also is leasing motels, hotels and other facilities in partnership with counties and cities to provide immediate isolation placement and housing options for people in need. 

  The trailers play a key role in a larger sheltering-and-housing action plan developed by the Sacramento Homelessness COVID-19 Response Team task force, which includes the City of Sacramento, County of Sacramento, Sacramento Steps Forward and Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency (SHRA).
