A bylaw officer has tested positive for COVID-19, according to a statement from the City of Kamloops.

The officer last worked for the city's Community Services division on the North Shore on Thursday and Friday last week. In the statement, David Trawin, city chief administrative officer, said the person “may have had minimal contact with the public in their work for the city.”

The City of Kamloops recently restructured its bylaw division, now operating as community services.

According to the statement, the employee used personal protective equipment and physical distancing during the time they worked.

“The Interior Health Authority is responsible for undertaking contact tracing, with full support from the city,” Trawin said in a statement.

“We are following our established safety protocols related to workplace exposure and cleaning, as the well-being of our employees [and] our community remains our highest priority."
