RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Three Richmond Ambulance Authority employees have tested positive for COVID-19.
The employees who tested positive were a paramedic, EMT and a member of the support staff.
RAA said none of the employees are believed to have gotten the virus while at work or interacted with any co-workers or patients while sick. They added all three people immediately notified RAA upon showing symptoms and self quarantined.
One staff member has recovered and returned to work after being self quarantined for 14 days. The other two staff members are continuing to recover at home and RAA said they are monitoring their condition.
