The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department says that seven of its members have tested positive for the coronavirus, two of which have recovered. Five personnel are currently battling the illness.
The information about the cases was released yesterday (April 14).
The department said that a nurse at Fairfax County’s Occupational Health Center is monitoring all personnel. If there are any concerns about exposure to the public or specific individuals, the department will provide notifications accordingly.
In addition to the number of confirmed cases, seven members remain in quarantine due to possible exposure. Known cases were tested at a site for first responders or through a private physician.
Despite impacts on personnel, the department “continues to fully staff all stations and apparatus,” according to a statement.
The department has not disclosed the assigned work locations of the members under quarantine.
