Riverside County is no longer providing capacity statistics for the hospitals in the county.
The federal temporary hospitals built at the County Fairgrounds in Indio and the old Sears Store in Riverside months ago, are still equipped and ready to be used. They are not currently being used because they are not needed at this time. They are not staffed right now because there are no patients there.
If they are needed, they can quickly be staffed and put into operation.
