Plan In The Works For Field Hospital At South Florida Fairgrounds

Palm Beach County is in the process of planning to stage a field Hospital at the South Florida Fairgrounds.

With the help of the state, the hospital will be set up in case there is a "significant surge" in hospitalizations due to COVID-19.

Emergency Management Director Bill Johnson says the plans don't guarantee that the worst-case scenarios will come to pass.

Governor DeSantis, during his update in Miami on Wednesday, said there are at least five field hospitals being planned throughout the state, but there's no need for them at this time.
