Vermont National Guard surge site officially ready for patients
ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (WCAX) - The surge site at the Champlain Valley Expo is officially ready.
The Vermont National Guard says they are now ready to turn on 50 beds to care for COVID-19 patients. There are also at least 100 beds for patients without COVID-19.
We’re told reconstruction efforts finished up Sunday.
“The ability to construct and then reconstruct a facility of this magnitude is a huge testament to the quality and hard work for our soldiers and airmen,” the Guard said in a Facebook post.
