In brief: Most are sanitary
Shelters work to prevent spread of communicable diseases, maintain clean and healthful facilities and there are both state and federal regulations regarding the health and safety standards and food and nutrituon regulations.
Providence for disease control, hand washing, food handling, injury and burn prevention, staff and client health vary by site, but generally exist to maintain sanitization.
