BRYAN, Texas — Three Bryan Police Officers have tested positive for COVID-19. The officers appear to have mild cases of the virus and seem to be recovering well, according to a statement issued by the Bryan Police Department.

The Bryan Police Department said they have been working with the Brazos County Health Department and medical professionals since the beginning to make sure they have the proper procedures in place that are consistent with the CDC. 

They are also working with the Brazos County Emergency Operations Center daily to stay current and share information impacting our city.

"We are reasonably confident that these three officers had no interactions with the public in their official capacity as police officers," according to the statement. "We have protocols in place to monitor employees when they come into the building and throughout the day."

 If an officer shows symptoms of any illness they are sent home immediately to self-monitor. If an employee shows symptoms of COVID-19 or reports they were in direct contact with someone exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 they are immediately sent home to self-quarantine. 

Bryan PD is sanitizing patrol vehicles between each shift, sanitizing work stations, practicing social distancing, and using personal protective equipment when deemed appropriate.
