Conn. (WTNH) — The Connecticut State Police reported Wednesday night four of their officers have tested positive for COVID-19.
In a statement, CSP said the development is not surprising given that the virus is transmitted person-to-person and their officers interact with the public throughout their shifts.
The four cases consist of a Trooper from Troop G – Bridgeport, Troop L – Litchfield, the Training Academy in Meriden, and a recruit from the 129th Training Troop (training remotely).
CSP reports, since symptom onset, they were all placed in self-quarantine.
All of these individuals are reported to be doing well and are expected to make a full recovery.
