COVID 19 precautions becoming EMS standards

The Door County Emergency Medical Service required extra precautions from communicable diseases before the COVID-19 pandemic.  Such precautions will likely become standard operating procedures for the foreseeable future.  EMS Director Aaron LeClair says the safety of patients and emergency personnel dictated changes in response protocols.



LeClair says sanitation procedures for ambulances are also being done more frequently.  He adds that a reserve ambulance is now dispatched when it's known or suspected that paramedics will be responding to a case of COVID-19.
