Halifax Regional Police COVID-19 update
Halifax Regional Police issued the following statement regarding positive COVID-19 cases within our workplace and the related follow-up:
“Over the latter part of this week, and following the confirmation of an employee who had tested positive for COVID-19 on February 26, Halifax Regional Police has had confirmation of three additional employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 at a single facility. Since the first case came to light, HRP has been working closely with Public Health and continues to facilitate testing and self-isolation of employees, as directed and recommended by Public Health. Social distancing and cleaning protocols are being reinforced consistently.
“We are also considering the possibility of temporary flexible work arrangements and re-deployments that could offer extra protection to our employees while causing minimal disruption to service delivery. The health and well-being of our employees and those we serve is paramount and we will continue to take every step to ensure every precaution is used as we deal with the effects of the ongoing pandemic on our workplace.”
