The officer, plus ten other officers who have come into close contact, are isolating as per Government rules. Throughout the G7 operation, officers committed to the policing the event will be subject to a testing regime in order to minimise transmission of the virus.

We wish the officer a quick recovery and thank them for their support to this operation.
