First responders are getting ready to tackle the coronavirus if it should hit the county. Since Monday, law enforcement, emergency management, EMS and fire departments have been in briefings about what they can do to not protect only the community from COVID-19, but also themselves. "We feel that where we are at is good," said Cleveland County Emergency Management Director Perry Davis. Preparation for the coronavirus started two weeks ago when communications departments in the county were given a script to ask those calling in with symptoms, Davis said. Communications will ask if a person has been out of the country, if they are running a fever or have shortness of breath.
