Frustration continues for a group of Central Florida firefighters being forced to use personal time to self-isolate. This follows a weekend of positive coronavirus tests among some of the Reedy Creek firefighters. The firefighter WESH 2’s Bob Hazen spoke to says he worries he’s going to run out of sick days soon. Mike Grant said his fellow firefighters will be facing a much higher risk of exposure in a few days as Disney continues reopening parks. Grant is with the Reedy Creek Improvement District which responds to calls at Disney. He’s now in quarantine at home after testing positive for COVID-19 “Started getting dizzy, started getting headaches, I have joint pain in my knees that is unbearable,” Grant said. He and three other firefighters started having symptoms last week.
