Williamson County EMS has five employees that have tested positive for COVID-19. The employees were in self-quarantine prior to their diagnosis and have not had contact with the public since being diagnosed. All employees are being monitored at home. Williamson County is working with the Williamson County and Cities Health District to identify co-workers and others who may have had contact with the employees so they can take necessary precautions. Williamson County EMS has enacted proactive measures designed to limit the spread of COVID-19 amongst EMS staff. Operational orders were implemented requiring the use of surgical masks at all times when a 6-foot distance cannot be maintained.  This is in addition to existing requirements for daily temperature checks and other health assessments prior to and during an employee’s EMS shift. Enhanced cleaning of stations and ambulances also has been implemented.
