Shawn Hayes was thankful to be holed up at a city-run hotel for people with COVID-19.
The 20-year-old wasnâ€™t in jail. He wasnâ€™t on the streets chasing drugs. Methadone to treat his opioid addiction was delivered to his door.
Hayes was staying at the hotel because of a coronavirus outbreak at the 270-bed Kirkbride Center addiction treatment facility in Philadelphia, where he had been seeking help.
