Emergency Medical Services across the Rio Grande Valley are making changes to stay safe amid the coronavirus outbreak.

EMS implemented a new screening process for coronavirus during a dispatch call.

“As soon as we hear positive, we do get a little bit more anxiety, but throughout the years we have learned to control that anxiety and we had to deal with it in a positive way,” said one of the EMS medics.

Stephanie Estrada says so far there has been about 50 cases where EMS has had to wear additional protective equipment.
