Several homeless shelters in the Lansing area are battling COVID-19 outbreaks. These shelters are not accepting new intakes.

New Hope Community Center in downtown Lansing put up a sign on their door saying they can’t have anyone come in right now.

“For everyone’s safety, services have been temporarily suspended. Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 19, 2021, we are closed to non-residents, the public and volunteers until Nov. 1, 2021,” the community center said on the sign on their door.

Several people at the shelter are currently quarantining.
