The Lee County Health Department says 24 of 112 residents at the facility have the virus. “Lee County Health Department and KSB Hospital are working closely together to monitor and provide support for this evolving situation. Most of the positives are without symptoms at this time. KSB Hospital is fully prepared if an expected percentage of the patients need hospitalization. This is yet another example of how quickly this virus can spread. The Jack Mabley Center has been following IDPH guidelines and working cooperatively with local leaders.”
The center serves individuals with behavioral and medical needs.
