Two police stations shutdown for decontamination
Two more police stations have been shut down due to members of the South African Police Service (SAPS) testing positive for COVID-19.
“All communities serviced by Brooklyn and Vereeniging SAPS are advised that the police stations have been temporarily closed for decontamination after some members of the SAPS from both stations tested positive for COVID-19.
The temporary points of operation for the stations are as follows:
