A screening tent was set up in front of the Wrangell Medical Center late last week. Hospital Administrator Leatha Merculieff explained that the tent is going to serve as a screening site for people visiting the hospital, part of the medical center's "surge plan" in the event COVID-19 spreads to Wrangell. The hospital is trying to keep people out of the emergency room as much as possible, she said, to keep it clear for people who really need it. SEARHC also has a trailer set up at the AICS clinic, on Wood Street, which Merculieff said is where tests for COVID-19 are conducted.
