Morgue-building
Workers install a handicap parking sign Tuesday afternoon in front of the Warren County Temporary Morgue.
The county is going to make its deadline for accepting dead bodies.According to county safety coordinator David Britton, the new county morgue will be operational today, July 1, the day River Park said it would stop accepting bodies of people who die outside the hospital.“We are prepared to fully meet our commitment to the hospital and begin accepting bodies July 1,” said Britton. “There may be a few scratches that need to be touched up, but we will be in operation that day.”Britton said the morgue won’t be fully operational Wednesday, but the plan is to have it at full capacity by the end of the week. He said a two-person cooler is currently usable if the need should arise today.
