As of this date, the State Police has four (4) confirmed cases of COVID-19 within our agency. This is not unexpected given the nature of this virus' transmission.
These four cases consist of a Trooper from Troop G - Bridgeport, Troop L - Litchfield, the Training Academy in Meriden and a recruit from the 129th Training Troop (training remotely).
Since symptom onset, they were all placed in self-quarantine.
The department is pleased to report that all of these individuals are doing well, in good spirits, and expected to make a full recovery. We continue to remind our employees and the public to maintain social distancing rules, wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds, cough/sneeze into your elbow, and Stay Home, Stay Safe if you can!
