According to WFTV’s Lauren Seabrook, the Reedy Creek Firefighters Union has stated that seven (7) firefighters and/or EMTs who work in and around Walt Disney World are currently under quarantine. Out of the seven, six have just returned from a conference in Tampa where another attendee has since tested positive. The seventh quarantined member of RCFD had just returned from a trip to Vietnam and South Korea.
To reiterate, none of these firefighters or EMTs have been confirmed as being infected with the Coronavirus, but have been quarantined as a precaution.
