The day center at the Lowndes Associated Ministries to People homeless shelter will be closed March 16-27, said Yurshema Flanders, LAMP shelter director.
The shelter is following precaution guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and has provided all of its 51 clients with sanitizing supplies.
LAMP is not accepting new clients unless they are referred from another agency, Flanders said. New clients must have their temperatures taken before they can be accepted into the shelter, she said.
If clients leave LAMP during the day, they must wash their hands thoroughly upon returning, Flanders said.
