SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Three Port of San Diego Harbor Police officers tested positive for coronavirus, the department announced Wednesday.

After learning of the positive results, the Port of San Diego says it notified the department and port staff.

The officers are isolated and undergoing treatment at their homes and will seek further care should it be necessary. Their condition is unclear at this time.

The department also said it’s working with San Diego County health officials to conduct contract tracing and notify people who had close contact with the officers.

“Prioritizing the health and well-being of the public, our partners, and Port employees and their families, the Port encourages and reminds the public, for their health as well as that of first responders, to wear face coverings, practice and maintain social distancing, wash hands frequently, and avoid crowded spaces and gatherings,” the Port of San Diego said in a news release.
