This morning speculation was going around that the morgue at the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital was closed for renovations. And so that left many asking the same question - where will their loved ones be stored?

Today the KHMH sent out a press release saying that the morgue is indeed undergoing a phased renovation aimed at increasing the capacity and creating a more hospitable environment for the care of deceased persons. During this period, the hospital's secondary storage facility on the hospital grounds will be used following the strict standards of infection control.
