Many precautions are underway in the office, jail and for deputies still on the street. All have masks that can been worn on calls during which someone may present symptoms or if they respond with the health department to assist in checks of those undergoing testing measures.
The masks are fitted with a hood over the head.
Will a deputy show up at the door in a mask for an ordinary call? Dwyer said that is not likely.
“If they get to the door and someone is symptomatic, they might go back the the cruiser and get their gear before contact,” Dwyer said.
In addition to the mask, gloves and goggles are also provided.
