LOWELL – Governor Charlie Baker will join Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders, MEMA Director Samantha Phillips and officials from UMass Lowell and Lowell General Hospital to tour the field hospital deployed at UMass Lowell.

The field hospital has been set up inside the UMass Lowell Campus Recreation Center on Aiken Street, next to LeLacheur Park.

A field hospital was set up in the same location during the early stages of the pandemic, however it wasn’t used.

This is a developing story.
