State Fair Park COVID-19 facility sees its third patient

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- The third patient has been admitted into the Alternate Care Facility at the Wisconsin State Fair Park on Saturday, Oct. 24, which is one more than the day prior.

This comes as Wisconsin sees 25 new deaths and another 4,062 new cases, according to Wisconsin Department of Health Services

The Alternate Care Facility at State Fair Park opened on Oct. 14 and for a week the facility saw no patients. The first patient was transported Wednesday, Oct. 21. Due to privacy matters, the Wisconsin Dept. of Administration (DOA) couldn't disclose what area of the state the patient was transported from. 

“We are thankful to have this facility available to Wisconsinites and our hospitals, but also saddened that this is where Wisconsin is at today,” said Gov. Evers. “Folks, please stay home. Help us protect our communities from this highly-contagious virus and avoid further strain on our hospitals.”
