Southhampton St. Shelter, 08/08/2020

Boston EMS Ambulance 4 and C30 can be seen responding to 112 Southampton Street, a homeless shelter located in Boston’s infamous Methadone Mile.

EMT’s can be seen wearing special PPE due to COVID-19 concerns, especially after the Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program began widespread testing that showed an average of almost 65% COVID-19 positive rate within the City’s indigent community. Even more troubling, the majority of these positive cases were completely asymptomatic.
