SOUTH BEND, Ind. – It was confirmed that 6 South Bend Firefighters are currently in quarantine and at least one of them tested positive for the coronavirus.

In an email obtained by ABC57, South Bend Fire Chief Carl Buchanan says, in part: “We’ve got a minimum of 6 firefighters with a possibility of more under quarantine with one having tested positive. That individual will be off a minimum of 14 days with the prayers that they don’t get any worse! All that worked with that firefighter are quarantined and being tested as well.”

City officials in South Bend have yet to comment on the matter.

All firefighters are being required to wear personal protective equipment when interacting with anyone who may be a COVID-19 patient.
