First Case Of COVID-19 Confirmed At SLC Homeless Resource Center
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The first case of COVID-19 has been confirmed at the Gail Miller Resource Center in Salt Lake City, according to officials with the Salt Lake County Health Department.
County communications director Chloe Morroni said around 100 individuals who were considered to be at-risk will be tested.
“Weeks of enhanced procedures to prevent the spread of the virus delayed a positive case for as long as possible,” Morroni said in a statement released Friday. “Those procedures included extra cleaning, further separation inside the resource center, and daily screenings for temperature or other symptoms, followed by testing, as needed.”
The 68,000 square-foot modern facility has 200 beds: 160 for men and 40 for women.
An update on the individual confirmed to have COVID-19 was not immediately available.
