City firefighter tests positive for COVID-19

CFR PATCH

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A firefighter with Clarksville Fire Rescue who has  tested positive for COVID-19 is self-isolating at home under a doctor’s care and doing well. 

CFR has consulted with the Montgomery County Health Department and is following all CDC and state Department of Health guidelines.

The firefighter last worked March 25 and had no symptoms. The other crew members present during the shift have been advised to self-isolate for 14 days from the last date of contact and monitor for symptoms. The coworkers have not reported symptoms and can return to work April 9 if no symptoms appear.

“This is our City workforce’s first confirmed case, and we are praying for our firefighter’s speedy recovery,” Mayor Joe Pitts said. “We are taking every precaution and following the recommended protocols to ensure the best possible outcome for our first responders and all our City employees.”

As the COVID-19 emergency unfolded, CFR began a routine several weeks ago to limit access to stations and to screen calls for exposure potential. Crews also work to clean and sanitize all stations  and apparatus a minimum of twice per shift. Crews also sanitize after any calls involved using personal protective equipment.
