MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee city and county officials are working with faith leaders to get temporary housing for people who are homeless during the pandemic.
Mayor Tom Barrett says they'll be able to stay in a former convent along Milwaukee's border with St. Francis.
The facility has two wings and 90 beds.
One wing would be used for people with symptoms, the other for those at risk.
Barrett says the move is being finalized.
