94 Cases Of COVID-19 Confirmed In Men’s Resource Center
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Salt Lake County officials on Friday announced there have been 94 cases of COVID-19 confirmed in one of the homeless resource centers.
County health officials put an action plan into place after two residents of the Men’s Resource Center, 3380 S. 1000 West, South Salt Lake, tested positive for the virus. Since then, the county tested a total of 205 men.
“Those who have tested positive have been moved to a county isolation facility where they can monitor their symptoms, rest, and recover while receiving three meals a day,” according to a county statement. “Those who have tested negative are staying at the Men’s Resource Center and are receiving health screenings two times a day.”
The resource center is not accepting new clients at this time, and visitors are not allowed in the facility.
“Social distancing is one of the most effective methods for slowing the spread of COVID-19, but that is especially challenging in a building that houses 300 people,” according to the county’s statement. “Despite the significant efforts made by service providers and health officials, we have reached an unfortunate situation like that seen in other similar facilities across the country.”
