The Laguna Canyon Road shelter received these trailers for the homeless that have Covid 19. They are not being used. If no homeless in Laguna have symptoms shouldn't they be used for other homeless like women that have children? This looks like a waste to me. There are plenty of people that live in Laguna below the poverty line that use the next door free food pantry like family's with children, why can't the most vulnerable of them live in the trailers?

I haven't kept up on the topic, but do we actually know that none of the homeless in Laguna Beach has coronavirus symptoms? Maybe Newsome is trying to keep the virus from spreading even more in that area?

There is one fact, Laguna Beach, with a population of 23,358 and 36 confirmed COVID-19+ tests, has OC's highest infectious rate for that category.

There was an attempt made to house the homeless COVID-19+ population at Ayres Hotel in Laguna Woods, but that was shot down. Laguna Woods residents complained that it made no sense to place them in the midst of a high risk (elderly) population.

However, it looks like Laguna Hills' efforts to stop them from being housed there, have failed:

Thanks for the info. I see that Laguna Beach has the highest per capita for Covid 19. Perhaps they are waiting for it to get worse and then move in the homeless to the trailers. If there is no cases the trailers will be a waste if they don't go to other poor people.

I seriously doubt that anyone wants things to worsen in Laguna Beach. Perhaps they have to line up contractors to get the trailers ready for habitation.

Also, they'll have to make ready medical and social services before anyone actually moves in to the trailers. That could mean contracting with individuals or agencies. Add to that necessary computer setups, the actual medical clinics, parking, etc.
