Governor Gavin Newsom announced Saturday California is continuing to acquire hotel rooms to house the homeless during the COVID-19 pandemic and it is moving closer to its goal of providing 16,000 rooms to get vulnerable people off the street.

Newsom explained at least 4,200 people have been moved out of shelters and off the streets into motel rooms and took the opportunity to scold leaders of unnamed cities for blocking efforts to house the homeless.

“Please consider the morality of those decisions, consider the moment we’re in, and the ethical question you’re being called and asked upon, consider your station in life and in history. All of us will be judged,”

The program to house the homeless during the current pandemic—Project Roomkey—was officially launched by the governor almost three weeks ago—the federal government is funding about 75 percent of the cost associated with this effort. Homeless people who test positive for COVID-19, those who may have been exposed to the virus, older people and those with underlying health conditions are eligible to participate in this initiative.

To date, the governor has secured 11,000 rooms and Motel 6 recently committed to provide an additional 5,000 rooms in 19 counties.
