A Montgomery/Fire Rescue firefighter has tested positive for COVID-19.

Spokesperson District Chief Q.L. Burke says the firefighter tested positive on May 11 after being sent home on May 6 following a routine evening temperature check.

Due to the positive confirmed results, 11 other firefighters that had prolonged close contact were removed from duty and instructed to isolate for a period of 14-days.

Those firefighters were also tested out of an abundance of caution and those results are pending at this time.
