Rumours that a lawman had been placed in quarantine caused an uproar among some staff in the Registration Department this week as they expressed fear that the dreaded COVID-19 had reached their section.
It was on Monday that an accused, who came back into the island from the United Kingdom, appeared in one of the Supreme Courts.
Social media has been rife with information that the lawman, who frisked him at the door, was removed to quarantine. Other sources confirmed the incident but refused to say anything more.
Police public relations officer, Acting Inspector Rodney Inniss, while admitting he had heard of an incident, classified it as “low-risk” since the individual was wearing a mask. (HLE)
