RICHMOND, Va. -- Three Richmond Police officers are in isolation and awaiting coronavirus test results after a recent exposure.

Richmond Police says the officers were exposed after interactions with staff of the Richmond Registrar’s Office during Election week.

In a Monday afternoon press conference, Richmond General Registrar Kirk Showalter confirmed that three staff members have tested positive since Election Day last Tuesday.

Because of the positive tests, 90 percent of the office's workforce is under quarantine until November 17.

Additionally, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney said he and his staff are isolating after member of his campaign team tested positive for COVID-19.

Stoney says the campaign staffer tested positive after interacting with employees at the Richmond Registrar's Office last week.
