“Self-distancing” is rarely an option in Toronto’s packed homeless shelters, so the city is taking steps to try to make some room, isolate clients being tested for COVID-19 and find separate lodgings for those with the deadly virus.

No clients of Toronto’s shelters have tested positive for the coronavirus, Mary-Anne Bedard, general manager of shelter, support and housing for the city, said Tuesday, as the number of reported cases in the city hit 108, including four people who have recovered and three suspected local infections unrelated to travel.
