Halifax Regional Police was advised this afternoon that one of our police officers has tested positive for COVID-19. We are now working with Public Health on contact-tracing and identifying additional employees who may need testing. Public Health will also determine if any additional notifications are necessary.
The employee who tested positive has not been in the workspace since April 5. Since that time, all workspaces and vehicles, with which the employee was in contact, have already undergone cleanings as part of HRP’s cleaning protocol.
We wish our employee a full and timely recovery, and will support them and their loved ones in every way that we can. This is a difficult and rapidly evolving situation, and we continue to take every precaution necessary to protect our members as well as the public from challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
