Respiratory triage tent
A behind-the-scenes look – In an ongoing effort to prepare for the COVID-19 global pandemic, Community Hospital erected a respiratory triage tent in early March 2020, to evaluate patients displaying respiratory symptoms, including those related to coronavirus. The triage tent is outside and separate from the Emergency Department, and away from the main hospital.
Please don't delay care if you need it. Our Emergency Department is happy to see anyone with serious illness. We are not overrun with COVID-19 patients at Community Hospital or in our Emergency department, and we separate COVID-19 suspected and confirmed patients from the rest of our patient population.
