As of today, operations at the Riverside Plaza and the Police Administration Building are expected to resume in full. 

The two buildings were closed on Tuesday after police received reports that two people who frequented the buildings had tested positive for COVID-19. The buildings were immediately closed for sanitization, while contact tracing was done with other people that the two may have been in close proximity with – an estimated 400 individuals. 

The Police Administration Building was opened yesterday, while the Riverside Plaza is expected to resume full operations today. 

Speaking to Loop News on Tuesday, president of the Police Service Social and Welfare Association, Inspector Gideon Dickson, called on the officers who frequented the two buildings over the last week not to panic, but to exercise all relevant caution, and to comply with all requests for testing.  

“I want to tell the membership that there is no need for immediate panic. We will ask our membership to what is required, follow the protocols we have set in place since the pandemic begun, and should anyone be called on for further testing due to tracing, that they comply so we nip this in the bud before it has the chance to spread further,” Dickson said.
