Provide federal funding for separated housing options in hotels for first reposnders if they would like support distancing from household members. Household transmission is common, contamination from viral shedding is difficult to avoid fir those placed in high exposure environs. (PPE is considered a last resort as supply is limited, it's use can be unreliable.) With the virulence of SARS-CoV-2, it is a significant burden to maintain safe precautions and distancing for first responders. Many wish to lodged away from their homes so they do not place their families and household members at risk. This would dually assist the hospitality industry in recovering some income from hotels and food service that could be used or subsidized. Other critical needs that could use similar housing could serve those dealing with domestic violence or other physical abuse.
