WINCHESTER, Va. — A “safety zone” has been set up for the care of a patient from West Africa who went to the Winchester Medical Center’s emergency department Thursday with an illness, according to officials with Valley Health System.
Hospital staff are using a dedicated isolation unit within the emergency department to care for the patient.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we have made the decision to create a safety zone around a patient from West Africa who presented to the Winchester Medical Center Emergency Department today
