Two police officers hit by Covid-19
Two police officers have come down with Covid-19, it was revealed tonight.
A police spokesman said one of the officers tested positive after returning from overseas and the other may have contracted the coronavirus on the island.
He added: “Both officers remain under mandatory quarantine and are also being closely monitored by the health authorities.
“Additional cleaning of facilities has taken place, with the assistance of a professional cleaning company.”
The spokesman said contact tracing for the two had started and officers who had been in contact with them had been tested.
He said the police contacts were “awaiting their results, which are expected to be received within the next 24 hours”.
The spokesman added: “This should eliminate any further threat to the safety and wellbeing of staff and members of the public.”
But he said: “However, out of an abundance caution, we will continue to closely monitor this situation and apprise the public as necessary, on any further developments.”
