Huntington firefighters test positive for virus

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — Two Huntington Fire Department firefighters have tested positive for the coronavirus, officials said Monday.

Huntington Fire Chief Jan Rader said the first firefighter tested positive Friday and a second tested positive Monday as officials work to quarantine and test additional staffers. Stations and trucks are being professionally cleaned and sanitized, according to a news release.

Mayor Steve Williams said he is working with union representatives to ensure that the city still has enough fire department staff while also maintaining a safe work environment.
