How to mitigate the effects of coronovirus on homeless people?

Why are people who are experiencing homelessness especially at risk from COVID-19? What actions are various sectors – public health, local government, charities –  currently taking to mitigate the impact of the pandemic on people facing homelessness? What other local or national policies need to be introduced, and how can we ensure positive reforms are sustained throughout the course of the pandemic and beyond?
