PMC Reopens COVID Triage Tents

Pikeville Medical Center opened the respiratory triage unit to handle the influx of COVID-19 patients, some of those infected with the Delta variant. The unit hadn’t been used since 2020.

Patients arriving at the emergency department will be treated in two separate groups. Those with mild symptoms will receive treatment in the triage unit. Those with more serious conditions will be taken to the COVID ward.
