According to reports, four metro police officers have tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday.
City of Cape Town spokesperson, Priya Reddy, reportedly said three of the officers are from the Transport Management Centre (TMC) in Goodwood, and the other, from its facility in Khayelitsha.
“Both of these facilities were evacuated on receipt of the information, and deep cleansed and sanitised as per the health and safety protocols. Staff were relocated for the time being, and in the case of the TMC, the building is now operational again,” Reddy said.
“The facility in Khayelitsha will be opened by [Thursday], if all goes as planned.”
According to Reddy, the four officers were receiving medical attention.
“All employees who may have had contact with the officers are currently in isolation and have been tested as well. We are awaiting the outcome of the results.”
She said the City had contingency plans in place to ensure that, as far as possible, operations and service delivery continued as normal.
