Georgia officials are setting up emergency operations at Hard Labor Creek State Park in Morgan County to transfer people who may have been exposed to COVID-19.
Gov. Brian Kemp and the Departments of Public Health, Public Safety and Natural Resources announced today that a section of the park would be isolated for use to transfer and monitor patients.
Officials said they are preparing out of an abundance of caution. No patients are currently scheduled to be transferred to this location.
Officials have already delivered and installed seven emergency trailers at the park, and related materials are en route for future use. Once established, the Department of Public Safety will provide security for this location.
To prevent the disruption of ongoing operations, access to this specific part of Hard Labor Creek State Park is strictly limited to official use. The rest of the park remains open.
