This afternoon, I received confirmation that I tested positive for COVID-19. I immediately quarantined myself at home several days ago after learning that I had been exposed to the virus.— Chief Jennings (@cmpdchief) December 8, 2020
WSOC reported that Jennings, Judge Elizabeth Trosch and District Attorney Spencer Merriweather flew to Wilmington on Dec. 2 to visit a site concerning an initiative involving the impact of childhood exposure to violence and Adverse Childhood Experiences.
Trosch experienced COVID-19 symptoms one day later, and tested positive for the coronavirus the following day, according to WSOC.
Jennings said that outside of light fatigue, he is symptom free and that citizens should not worry about any CMPD interruptions.
This virus has impacted far too many of us. Please continue to follow health guidelines as we fight this battle together.— Chief Jennings (@cmpdchief) December 8, 2020
