Health care workers Jan Hicks (left), Rachael Jimerson sit under a tent outside the VA Rutherford County Outpatient Clinic in Forest City -- observing social distancing -- while screening veterans arriving at the clinic. The workers have been screening patients outside for three weeks due to the coronavirus outbreak and are making sure veterans healthy to go into the clinic. As of Wednesday no one in Rutherford County has tested positive for the virus. Hicks and Jimerson said the 70 degree weather Wednesday afternoon was more pleasant than 33 degrees and raining on Tuesday. They will maintain the post as long as necessary, as they rotate shifts between other workers.
