women in fatigues walk out of the doors of a COVID-19 facility. A sign on the door reads: CLOSED

A group of National Guard members walk out of the doors of the former emergency department at Sandhills Regional Medical Center. The NC Department of Health and Human Services leased the shuttered facility to use it as a potential surge facility in case the state’s hospitals become inundated with coronavirus patients. National Guard members helped prepare the facility for use in April and May. Photo credit: Rose Hoban
