The Acting Commissioner of Police has confirmed that five Police Constables at the Nasova Barracks have tested positive for COVID-19.
Rusiate Tudravu told FBC News that one is a primary contact of a positive case.
The Acting Commissioner of Police says the cases recorded from Nasova are from the same Barrack.
“This is through the random swab which we have arranged as our internal process to check mechanism within. We have just contained the Barrack and have it guarded so that no one enters until all the fumigation and the necessary Health measures are completed.”
Tudravu adds that there will be no lockdown of the area as police officers are part of the frontline workers.
However, movement in and out of the Barrack is strictly being monitored for the safety of the police personnel and their families.
He adds the officers were serving at the Totogo Police Station.
Tudravu says these officers have been taken to the Outrigger Hotel for quarantine.
