The city of Los Angeles has set up emergency homeless shelters in different parts of the city to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Unfortunately, someone staying at an emergency homeless shelter in Granda Hills tested positive this week.

Los Angeles Daily News confirmed that a deep cleaning is being done of the facility according to an aide from Garcetti's office.

Officials were made aware of the test results on Monday, Harrison Wollman said.

The person “was isolated and a deep cleaning was done at the shelter,” Wollman said. “A few people moved out, but they were not forced to leave.”

That shelter had around 40 people staying there, he said.

Someone staying at the shelter told the Daily News that she requested to switch locations because of the positive location. Eventually, she was given a spot to stay at the Dockweiler RV park.

Yellow tape has now been placed around the shelter but not all residents there have been informed.
