Hard Labor Creek State Park may receive patients exposed to COVID 19

Press release from Gov. Brian Kemp

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp issued a statement Monday announcing that he is considering Hard Labor Creek State Park to receive patients exposed to COVID-19

Hard Labor Creek State Park is in neighboring Morgan County.

Atlanta, GA – Out of an abundance of caution, Governor Kemp and the Departments of Public Health, Public Safety, and Natural Resources have identified Hard Labor Creek State Park in Morgan County as a location for the isolation and monitoring of patients who may have been exposed to COVID-19.

No patients are currently scheduled to be transferred to this location.

Currently, the Governor’s Office and state officials are working together to prepare the site for the placement of patients. Officials have already delivered and installed seven emergency trailers at the park, and related materials are en route for future use. Once established, the Department of Public Safety will provide security for this location.

Officials are utilizing an isolated section of Hard Labor Creek State Park where emergency trailers and operations will be separated from the rest of the property.

To prevent the disruption of ongoing operations, access to this specific part of Hard Labor Creek State Park is strictly limited to official use.
