A Cornwall Borough Police Officer has tested positive for COVID-19.

The news was released in a press release Thursday by Borough Manager Cody Rhoads.

According to Rhoads, the police department building and vehicles are scheduled to undergo a deep clean/sanitization this afternoon.

“The building has been and will remain closed to the public during the pandemic,” said Rhoads in an email to LebTown. “No other officers or employees have shown any symptoms at this time but we will continue to limit their interaction with the public by following the same protocols that they, and most other first responders, have been doing since the onset.”

Rhoads said that no other officers or employees have shown any symptoms at this time.

According to the release, anyone who was had contact with the Cornwall Borough Police Department in the last two weeks should “remain vigilant of their condition.”

Rhoads noted that this was a good example that even taking preventative measures doesn’t make you immune from getting this. “Hopefully it’s a good reminder for everyone to take the guidelines seriously,” he said.
