Police commissioner tests positive for coronavirus

Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley

The Commissioner of Police has contracted the coronavirus after a trip overseas, it was revealed today.

A police spokesman said Stephen Corbishley tested positive after returning to Bermuda earlier this week.

He added Mr Corbishley took a pre-travel test just before he came back to the island, which was clear.

But he will now have to be quarantined for the next two weeks after an arrival test showed the presence of the coronavirus.

The spokesman said Mr Corbishley observed isolation requirements after his return to the island as he awaited his test result and had no contact with police officers or the public.

He added: “The Department of Health is aware and Commissioner Corbishley is in regular contact, electronically, with his management team.

“Mr Corbishley remains in good spirits and looks forward to returning to work.”
