From the Document: "New York State has been hit very hard by COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. New York State Forest Rangers have had many COVID-19 positive members. The way we look at incidents here in our state as far as our Forest Rangers are concerned is COVID is the incident and any wildfire incident or search and rescue incident is the incident within the incident. Implementing this mindset we have reduced the number of Rangers who have been infected with COVID-19. We also quarantine Rangers who have symptoms or are awaiting diagnostic test results. Isolation is for individuals who test positive. The terms are not interchangeable."
