St. Cloud Adapts 9-1-1 Calls To COVID-19 

The City of St. Cloud Police and Fire departments are adjusting how they respond to requests for assistance. Callers using 9-1-1 for medical emergencies will be asked additional questions to determine if they have flu-like symptoms, have recently traveled, or have come in contact with someone who has the coronavirus.
   
In some cases, first responders may arrive wearing protective garments and masks over their nose and mouth as a precaution. They will also stand from a distance and ask additional questions to determine if you have flu-like symptoms. These slight adjustments are necessary to keep first responders safe as they provide assistance.

The City’s departments want to assure you, none of the new protocols will delay assistance and the actions taken are consistent with the way they typically handle someone with flu-like symptoms.

ST. CLOUD POLICE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDS FINGERPRINTING SERVICES

The St. Cloud Police Department has suspended fingerprinting services at its substation located at 923 New York Avenue until March 30th due to issues associated with COVID-19, coronavirus. Fingerprinting is performed by a volunteer team, most of whom are senior-aged and therefore at high-risk for the virus.

“We realize this is an inconvenience, but the safety and well-being of our volunteers has to come first in these unique circumstances. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding,” said Police Chief Pete Gauntlett.
