Eric Leonard12h ago / 7:10 PM UTCLos Angeles officials said the city is making progress in expanding emergency shelter programs for those experiencing homelessness, a population that public health experts warn may be at greatest risk for exposure to the coronavirus, according to a late Monday federal court filing.The city is “engaged with Skid Row service providers and community advocates in efforts to educate persons experiencing homelessness in the Skid Row area to practice social distancing and space their tents 12 feet apart from each other,” according to the filing.Previously, some handwashing stations left near homeless encampments had been removed by the Andy Gump company after an employee was punctured with a used hypodermic needle while servicing one. The city said in its court filing that the stations were removed “without any input from the City” and that it is working with Andy Gump to address the company’s concerns while replacing the stations “to keep these life-saving hygiene facilities available.”Gabe Piscione13h ago / 6:48 PM UTCJean-Nicholas Fievet and Saphora Smith13h ago / 6:17 PM UTCBritain’s PM Boris Johnson is ‘stable,’ remains in intensive careBritish Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition is “stable” and he remains in intensive care for close monitoring,
