As of March 26th, 2020, Arbor Health, Morton Hospital has tested a total of 73 patients for COVID-19, or “Coronavirus.” We had our first positive COVID-19 patient come in earlier this week. We are very pleased to report that the patient, a member of our East Lewis County community, is self-quarantining and recovering at home.
We encourage everyone to follow the public instruction of “social distancing.” To put it plainly, stay away from people who are not in your immediate family. We initiated a Coronavirus Hotline for our established patients and East Lewis County community members who have symptoms of a fever, a new cough or shortness of breath. The number for the hotline is 360-624-5869.
