AZTEC — As the COVID-19 pandemic spread through congregate living facilities and concerns emerged about the population served by the Sobering Center, Farmington and San Juan County came together to partner with a local business to provide a place for people to quarantine who might not otherwise have a place to go.

This included homeless people and Sobering Center clientele.
