10 others are in isolation; Fire Chief Joe Henning says services will not be affected

The COVID-19 pandemic is now starting to affect personnel for the City of Quincy.

Fire Chief Joe Henning said Wednesday that four members of their staff have tested positive for COVID-19. A statement says that the Department worked with the Adams County Health Department to determine what action to take to contain any potential spread amongst staff. Henning says that besides the four positive results, ten others have been isolated, on the recommendation of the Health Department. He says that due to city of Quincy and HIPPA regulations, no names will be released. Quincy Mayor Kyle Moore tweeted that the four positive cases are all home in isolation. He also said that they contracted the virus from different sources. According to Henning, Fire Department personnel continue to wear PPE when they respond on all incidents that require close interaction with the public. He also says that the QFD continues to de-contaminate all stations daily and equipment as needed. Crews are screened when they get to work to make sure they are asymptomatic.

Henning says that the public should continue to feel comfortable calling for help when needed.
