SOUTH SALT LAKE, Utah — 94 men have tested positive for COVID-19 at a South Salt Lake homeless shelter.
The first two confirmed cases of COVID-19 were identified in the Men’s Resource Center located at 3380 South 1000 West last week.
After a second positive case was found in a different dorm in the resource center, the whole center became a quarantine facility and the majority of guests and staff were tested for COVID-19.
Test results for the Men’s Resource Center are showing a high percentage of positives, with 94 men testing positive for COVID-19 out of 205 men tested.
Those who have tested positive have moved to a county isolation facility where they can monitor their symptoms, rest, and recover while receiving three meals a day.
Those who have tested negative are staying at the Men’s Resource Center and are receiving health screenings two times a day.
The center is still not accepting new guests and visitors are not allowed in the facility.
