Police statement following outbreak at Station
Thames Valley Police's Local Policing Area Commander for West Berkshire, Superintendent Lindsey Finch, has issued a statement following an outbreak of Covid-19 at Newbury Police Station.
"I want to inform you that over the last few days a number of officers working within the West Berkshire Local Policing Area have tested positive for Coronavirus. These smaller outbreaks are in line with what we are seeing nationally as the virus develops and we continually adapt to best manage our response to keep ourselves, loved ones and our communities safe.
"We have acted quickly to ensure that these officers took all the necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus and are now self-isolating at home.
"We continue to work in partnership with Public Health England and West Berkshire Council and are putting additional plans in place to contain and manage the situation.
"I would like to reassure you that this has not had an impact on the public service we provide in West Berkshire and my officers and staff continue to work hard to protect you and keep our communities safe."
