Homeless shelter makes adjustments amid coronavirus concerns

SALISBURY, Md. – The nonprofit HALO is currently no longer accepting new guests at their shelters.

The Executive Director of HALO Celeste Savage says this major change at the nonprofit is just another step to help stop the spread of the coronavirus in the community.

Savage says they want to keep everyone safe, which means people in need of shelter are encouraged to reach out to other agencies.

“We all have to work together as a community and kind of listen,” said Savage.

“They’re putting these things into place so that everybody’s safe and the sooner we’re all doing it the sooner this coronavirus, we can say bye to,” said Savage.

HALO officials say they are also still asking for monetary donations to help continue serving the community and for more information on how you can help, click here.
