Chandigarh, July 7
The Sector 61 police post was shut today after a constable’s son tested positive for Covid.
The police said the matters and complaints related to the post would be dealt with at the police post in Sector 43. Both posts fall under the jurisdiction of the Sector 36 police station.
The police said a 24-year-old son of a constable posted at the Sector 61 post was found positive for the virus and admitted to the GMSH-16 here today.
“Since the constable’s samples have been taken for the Covid test and it will take at least two days for the report to come, the Sector 61 police post has been closed,” said a police official. The police will take a decision on reopening the post only after the constable’s report is received.
“The cops, who are aged and were in contact with the constable, have been told to home-quarantine themselves till the time the constable’s Covid report is received,” said a police official.
The police said the field staff would continue performing their duties, including patrolling the area. — TNS
