Sky Lakes went on lockdown yesterday during the shooting event but it was not related to any Coronavirus outbreak locally.
Sky Lakes released the following statement last night:
Contrary to rumors, Sky Lakes Medical Center is not on lockdown, and there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at this time. Earlier this evening, Sky Lakes Medical Center went under lockdown due to a shooting event in the local area. This event has nothing to do with the COVID-19 and the hospital is back open and has resumed normal operations.
Sky Lakes leaders have crafted well-considered processes and protocols to deal with patients who meet the CDC’s specific criteria of COVID-19 and who present at Sky Lakes Medical Center or any of our outpatient facilities.
