Patients are being turned away, directed to other medical facilities while the Medical Center's ER is on lockdown. The Hospital released a statement that the ER is on lockdown while evaluating a patient with a communicable illness that may pose a risk to the community. And that they are working with State and local officials and the Center for Disease Control.
Nothing released yet on the patient being evaluated, or the illness. All staff that had not had contact with the ER and patient were sent home around 7:00 PM tonight.
