Georgia police chief to return after coronavirus recovery

By The Associated Press

SYLVESTER, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia police chief infected by the coronavirus plans to return to work soon.

Sylvester Police Chief Shawn Urquhart tested positive for the virus on July 15 and has been isolated at home in rural southwest Georgia. Sylvester City Manager Autron Hayes told WALB-TV that the chief plans to be back on the job Monday.

Urquhart recently took a follow-up test for the virus and it came back negative, Hayes said. The police department and Sylvester City Hall underwent a deep cleaning a week ago to help protect workers.

The chief is among three Sylvester Police Department employees to test positive for the virus, Hayes said. He said one of them, an investigator, is still recovering at home in isolation.
