Exposure on the Front Lines
94 of 170 New Orleans EMS employees exposed to coronavirus, and 29 are isolated at home after showing symptoms. These numbers are constantly changing as NOEMS crews are working to respond in an ever changing situation.
The NOEMS Exposure Taskforce is working diligently with the NOEMS Foundation to help crews who are isolating from their home and loved ones during this time. As the increase in persons who are exposed to COVID-19, our medics are working to keep their families safe in the best way they can.
