    Task Force Medical was assembled quickly and began training on the specific COVID-19 tasks they may be required to perform. These tasks include, proper use of personal protective equipment, volunteer COVID-19 mapping, mortuary operations and administering the COVID-19 swab test. The training was two fold in its purpose, it insured the guardsman were prepared for the tasks and fully protected, while operating in a manner that is compliant with the CDC and Department of Health rules and guidelines.
