The migrant shelters located in Tijuana, Baja California lack medical and economical resources to keep on functioning.It is almost impossible to carry out the isolation recommendations issued by authorities because children, women and men all share bathrooms and sleep in big rooms with mattresses.They are currently operating at closed doors, without letting in new migrants or letting out people that are currently staying there.People are scared that these shelters may close due to a COVID19 infection that may be spread between people in the shelter.Some kids have shown symptoms, and people are moving away from them with fear it might be COVID-19.  Administrators of the Center informed there are twins of four months with respiratory problems.
