Shortly after the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments around the world were urged to leave no population behind. Following a COVID-19 risk evaluation in a refugee and asylum seekers reception center, in September 2020, we considered the priorities of managing COVID-19 in these settings. We encourage actions on four fronts to reduce the COVID-19 associated burden amongst these vulnerable populations based on our interviews, observations and recommendations: (i) decongestion, (ii) facilitated testing, (iii) screening for symptoms and (iv) targeted public health and risk communication.
