City Providing Hand-washing Stations for the Homeless During COVID-19
The City of Pensacola is providing hand-washing stations at 11 locations for the homeless population or those who do not have regular access to soap and water during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The stations are being provided in an effort to help homeless individuals practice good hand-washing techniques, as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
The hand-washing stations are being funded through District 2 Councilwoman Sherri Myers' discretionary fund and District 6 Councilwoman Ann Hill's discretionary fund, along with the city's general fund. Hand-washing stations are available at the following locations in the city (some sites subject to change):
