Susann Rigg, 50, had been staying in Safe Space in Launceston since December 24, but had nowhere to go when it suddenly shut on Saturday due to a positive COVID case among staff.

One of Launceston's only homeless shelters was shut for three days after a staff member who worked an eight-hour shift tested positive for COVID-19, leaving some in desperate need of a place to stay.
