New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – At the Yale New Haven Hospital emergency room Thursday it appeared to be business as usual; but workers say they’ve seen some staff getting training around the building.
Some New Haven neighbors say they’re worried, while others think the staff can handle this situation.
“I guess it’s a little scary, but if you think about it I mean it’s not exactly airborne transmission right now just everybody’s keeping their own personal space to be as precautionary as possible,” said Edward Sperry, who works at Yale University.
Manchester’s Tim Cummiskey said he just come from a doctor’s appointment at the hospital Thursday morning.
“It’s some concern of course, but I trust the people at Yale. The doctors at Yale to keep things quarantined,” he said.
Hali Bristol’s son had a doctor’s appointment Thursday, and she rethought of going inside the building.
“I don’t even want to walk in there now, you know? Obviously I know the person’s not next to me, but who knows if a nurse went in there and now a nurse is going outside just to me it bothers me.”
