The Toronto Police Service is dealing with a pair of COVID-19 outbreaks.

Toronto police have confirmed COVID-19 outbreaks at 31 Division and at the Toronto Police Training College in South Etobicoke.

Police spokesperson, Connie Osborne, says they won’t be releasing exact numbers because it’s not in their interest to disclose how many members they can have on and off duty, and also this is a rapidly-evolving situation at both locations.

Osborne says what’s important is that they have been able to continue with the delivery of frontline services to the community.
