Orange County (CA) Firefighters Self-Quarantined After Possible Coronavirus Exposure

An Orange County Fire Authority crew based in Irvine has self-quarantined after allegedly coming into contact with a possible coronavirus patient, reports CBS Los Angeles.

Four personnel from Fire Station No. 20 decided to self-quarantine after they transported a patient Saturday night to a local hospital who had recently traveled internationally and showed symptoms similar to COVID-19.

The firefighters quarantined themselves inside the fire station as a precaution. They were all tested and are awaiting results. The rest of the Engine Company 20 firefighters who were not on the call, including the battalion chief, were moved to another station.
