Organizers seek to delay homeless count in Stanislaus County due to COVID-19

Stanislaus County is the latest to request a delay in the count by a month, moving it to Feb. 23-24. The Stanislaus Community System of Care Council voted unanimously Thursday to send a letter to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to ask for the date change.
