Message sent on behalf of LPA Commander Lindsey Finch on COVID testing

Alert message sent 22/09/2020 15:50:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I want to inform you that over the last few days a number of officers working within the West Berkshire Local Policing Area have tested positive for Coronavirus. These smaller outbreaks are in line with what we are seeing nationally as the virus develops and we continually adapt to best manage our response to keep ourselves, loved ones and our communities safe.

We have acted quickly to ensure that these officers took all the necessary precautions to stop the spread of the virus and are now self-isolating at home.

We continue to work in partnership with Public Health England and West Berkshire Council and are putting additional plans in place to contain and manage the situation.

I would like to reassure you that this has not had an impact on the public service we provide in West Berkshire and my officers and staff continue to work hard to protect you and keep our communities safe.

Superintendent Lindsey Finch
Local Policing Area Commander for West Berkshire

Please see West Berkshire Council’s press release related to this incident who are leading on the local outbreak control plans in West Berkshire.
