Twelve policemen at the G7 summit have self-isolated after an officer tested positive for coronavirus on the Falmouth accommodation cruise ship, police said.
Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed the officer completed his testing regimen early Friday morning and received a positive lateral flow test.
The force said it supported the G7 police and was staying on the ferry they hired for the duration of the summit, the MS Silja Europa.
A police spokesperson said: “The officer, as well as those who have come into close contact, are now self-isolating at another designated location.
“Anyone who has come in close contact or is in the bubble of those who have tested positive are also currently self-isolating, which equates to 12 agents in total. The next step is for those who have tested positive to perform a PCR test.
“We continue to follow the advice of Public Health England. “
The ferry is home to over 1,000 police officers who have been brought in to provide security for the summit.
