Three Sarasota Police officers test positive for COVID-19

I took my piece down because the SPD disagreed with some of the information provided to me by my source and I could not validate it, without outing my source.  So, I thought it would be in the best interest not to keep the article up after talking with the SPD PIO.  Below is their press release.

Three sworn patrol officers with the Sarasota Police Department have tested positive for COVID-19. These are the first three positive cases for the agency. All three officers are at home on quarantine.

COVID-19 protocols remain in place at the Sarasota Police Department Headquarters. Chief Bernadette DiPino is encouraging all citizens to wear masks in public, social distance and wash their hands. These actions could prevent citizens and Sarasota Police officers from contracting COVID-19.
