Amid Covid-19 Virus, St. Joseph Hospital sets up patient treatment tent

EUREKA, Ca (KIEM)-St. Joseph Health of  Humboldt County is doing its part in preventing the spread of the Covid-19 Virus.

St. Joseph’s Hospital in Eureka on Friday set up a tent next to its emergency room. If patients come to the hospital and feel they have symptoms of the virus, they are separated from other patients and treated in the tent.

Samples are taken at the hospital and then sent to a lab for results. The hospital is taking these measures to keep everyone safe.
