BROCK: The Township of Brock is investigating after multiple township staff members allegedly disregarded COVID-19 protocols. On Thursday, April 15th, Mayor John Grant released a letter to residents regarding an alleged incident.

“The Township has been made aware that three firefighters and one works employee were involved in helping someone in the community move [from] their residence on the Easter Week. We also understand at least four people who attended this residence have since tested positive for COVID-19. At this point, we know our four employees have tested negative, and we are also aware the three firefighters have received both of their vaccine shots,” Mayor Grant’s letter read.

The Mayor’s letter went on to criticize the members of staff who were involved.

“As Mayor, I am disappointed that members of our staff exercised such poor judgement as most of these individuals are first responders and understand the severity of the situation. Further investigation into the matter will continue, and disciplinary measures will be considered and implemented once this has been completed. We will respect the privacy of those involved as is required by law. To the residents, I apologize for this incident, and I am embarrassed to hear this type of thing would even happen given everything everyone knows about the seriousness of this pandemic.”

The letter concluded by stating Public Health “will continue their investigative process of contact tracing.”
