The City of San Francisco opened its first officially-sanctioned homeless camp this week, located outside City Hall.
Other official homeless camps are to be opened later, to address the problem of crowded informal camps on city streets.
As Breitbart News noted in March, both San Francisco and Los Angeles originally planned to move as many homeless people indoors as possible to prevent the spread of the virus in homeless encampments.
Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Dr. Ben Carson recently told Breitbart News Daily that homeless tent cities that are set up on public land, and that provide medical services, might be the best way to address the problem.
