Brits police officer tests positive for Covid-19

A Brits police officer has tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday, 9 May, and the Brits police station has been temporarily closed. Brig Vish Naidoo, national spokesperson for police, confirmed on Monday that a female Warrant Officer at Brits police informed her commander on Saturday that she had tested positive for Covid-19 during a routine check up. “She also indicated that her doctor advised her to do a second test which she did and the result is awaited. The station has been evacuated and it is currently undergoing a decontamination process,” Naidoo said. He said three police members who had been in close contact with the Warrant Officer, and who are suspected to be at risk, have also been tested. The police members are two Captains and a Lieutenant Colonel at the police station. “A (police) tent will be erected in Court Street in Brits from where the public will be assisted.” Calls to the Brits police station will be redirected to the Hartbeespoort police station from where it will be directed to the Brits police patrol vehicles.
