SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION) Santa Cruz Community Health said it has been working with Dignity Health and the Santa Cruz County Health Services Agency to create "Covid Kits" for community members without housing.

The organization said it is handing out backpacks filled with masks, first aid supplies, a thermometer, dental kits, food, water and other items.

There are currently 1,287 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Santa Cruz County. More than 200 of those cases are in the City of Santa Cruz. Last month, a Salvation Army Shelter in Watsonville had to temporarily close after multiple residents and staff members tested positive for COVID-19.
