The Whittlesea police station in the Eastern Cape has been closed for deep cleaning and decontamination after a member tested positive for Covid-19, police have said.

This brings the number of police stations closed for cleaning to six in the Eastern Cape since 1 May. Other stations recently closed are New Brighton, Bhisho, Kinkelboos, King William’s Town, and Willowvale.

National police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo confirmed that the Whittlesea police station, situated at Shepstone Street, had closed on Thursday.

“Yes I can confirm that this station was indeed closed due to a member being tested positive. The station was evacuated and is currently undergoing a decontamination process, while the screening and testing of members is reaching finality.”
