The Yorkton RCMP Detachment is limited non-essential services after a front-line officer tested positive for COVID-19.
RCMP say the officer immediately self-isolated on the direction of the Saskatchewan Health Authority and will remain in isolation until they are cleared.
All RCMP employees that were in close contact with the person are now in mandatory self-isolation as well and being tested for the virus — 14 officers and six civilian employees.
The Yorkton RCMP say because of the Privacy Act of Canada, they will not be identifying the officers publicly or providing ongoing health updates.
The RCMP detachment is temporarily closing its doors to the general public for non-emergency matters for two weeks from Sept. 28 until Oct. 12. RCMP say the Yorkton detachment will still answer all phone
