I am an EMS worker. How can I protect myself from getting COVID-19?

Persons needing 911 services or transportation to the hospital have been told to let EMS and others know they have COVID-19 symptoms and to wear a mask. If they do not have a face mask, give them one as soon as possible.

EMS workers can protect themselves by wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment and practicing good hand hygiene. Be sure that your rig is cleaned after transporting a suspect COVID-19 person or person with respiratory symptoms.
