“For reasons of security and responsibility to the population and because one of the colleagues who participated in the rescue in the mountain tested positive for COVID-19, the police service was suspended tonight,” said the PME.

The rescue operation in a mountainous area to which reference is made occurred between Sunday and Monday previous, when 9 members of a family got lost during a recreational hike in one of the upper parts of the canton.

PME officials have reported that all staff are observing mandatory health and sanitary measures in the wake of these test results. PME currently plans to resume providing public services on August 19, 2020.
