Newmarket’s only seasonal homeless shelter will extend its overnight shelter program by one month as the near shutdown continues in the community to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Inn from the Cold will provide about four less beds due to public health recommendations around physical distancing and keeping a six-foot distance between guests as they sleep and dine, but it will still be able to offer up to 32 beds for men and women aged 16 and older until May 5.

The program, which begins every year in November, was scheduled to end April 5.
