Brothers and Sisters,
Please find the latest Covid Numbers. The following Members have given us permission to notify you that they have tested positive for Covid since last week's update: Hugh Devlin, Kyle McLaughlin, Derek Jordan, and Nicole Signoretti. The EMS Division has been in contact with all CFD Members who they consider close contacts per the CDC definition. If you think you meet the definition, but have not yet been contacted, please notify the EMS Division.
Members are encouraged to comply with all CFD guidance and directives intended to reduce the likelihood of transmission, particularly those concerning mask use, ventilation, distancing, and avoiding shared meals. Please continue to clean and disinfect the stations and apparatus, and ensure that all chemicals are in properly labeled containers.
Members who wish to use Emergency Sick Leave under the City Policy related to the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act should submit a Form 2 to Acting Chief Mahoney, and follow the instructions in the city policy announcement under Notification and Documentation.
