Yuma Regional Medical Center officials have confirmed the first positive cases of COVID-19 among staff members.

YRMC officials announced Friday that lab results confirmed that three employees have tested positive for the virus.

Dr. Robert Trenschel, the President and CEO of YRMC said that, due to the nature of work they do as healthcare providers, their staff is at a higher risk.

Personal Protective Equipment, also known as PPE, is required and available for all employees who work directly in patient care areas and available to others working in other areas.

Also on Friday, YRMC officials shared a video on their social media accounts of a patient who has recovered from COVID-19 and was released from the hospital being cheered by medical staff.
