North Bay Police say one of their members has tested positive for COVID-19.
Police say there is no danger to the public and enhanced safety measures have been put in place.
They say the member tested positive while off duty.
While the exposure did not happen in the workplace, NBPS has requested several other members of the Service self-isolate as a precaution, as they may have been in contact with the member who tested positive.
Members of the public will be restricted from entering the building, except in necessary circumstances. Online, over-the-phone, and curbside options will be available for services that require attendance at NBPS headquarters.
The North Bay Police Service has been in constant contact with the North Bay and Parry Sound District Health Unit since being informed of the initial positive test and have implemented enhanced health and safety guidelines to prevent the spread of this virus.
Since the onset of the Pandemic, the service says they have followed COVID-19 workplace safety precautions in NBPS Headquarters as well as for officers on patrol who regularly interact with members of the public in North Bay and Callander.
NBPS will not be releasing the name of the member who tested positive for COVID-19.
