Kerry O’Brien, deputy director of media and public relations at Boston’s Department of Neighborhood Development, said the City has made preparations in the event of an outbreak among the homeless population in Boston.

“We’ve already located different areas to put someone if we notice that they are ill,” O’Brien said. “Health Care for the Homeless is handling all of that.”
