FROM WSJSTAFF REPORTS

Out of an abundance of caution, Station #2 is closed until further notice, so the facility can be professionally cleaned and sanitized. In addition, all the firefighters at the facility have been sent home and told to self-isolate.
According to Fire Chief Ron Early, the department is performing contract tracing to determine whether others may have been exposed.
There will be no interruption to fire services in Wake Forest as a result of the positive coronavirus case.
