North Texas reached a historic and symbolic milestone in the fight against COVID-19. Tuesday morning, Parkland Hospital closed its COVID-19 intensive care units.
Parkland has served as the largest single-site treatment center for COVID-19 patients in North Texas.
Just before noon Tuesday, Parkland officials told The Dallas Morning News that, in addition to the closure of the hospital’s two COVID-19 ICUs, the iconic “Red Box” has been dismantled.
The latest news from around North Texas.
While this doesn’t mark the end of this fight, it does represent an important milestone, and one that seems miraculous given the conditions a year ago.
