WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - A fourth Wichita Falls police officer has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Wichita Falls - Wichita County Public Health District.
This officer had contact with one of the original three cases that were reported.
Sergeant Charlie Eipper with the WFPD said they are now quarantining at home.
“We can’t stop everybody from getting it but if we can keep a whole group at one time from being sick that’s going to be a huge success for us,” said Sgt. Eipper.
No risk of exposure to the public is believed to have happened.
The Wichita Falls Police Department reported today that 3 Officers have tested positive. One additional positive case, who also works at the Police Department, was also received today. This Officer had contact with one of the original 3 cases, and therefore was previously identified for potential exposure, and has been off work since late last week. This brings the total positive Officers to 4. It is important to note, the Officers job responsibilities do not involve in-person interaction with the public.
