Glasgow Airport based police team made to isolate over omicron fear. The wife of one of the cops had been in contact with one of the first people known to have the omicron variant in the UK.

Reportedly an entire shift of cops had to self-isolate over worries that they could be infected with the omicron variant. The officers had to take tests but reportedly no one came back with a positive result.

Nine people caught the omicron variant from a party that was held in Glasgow. One of the cop’s wives attended the party but luckily did not catch the bug.


Speaking to The Sun a source commented: “There was a birthday party where the person celebrating didn’t realise they had the virus.

“As result nine folk caught it. Luckily the cop’s wife wasn’t one of them.

“But she had to self isolate along with her husband pending the test results. Even though he wasn’t at the party his entire shift had to isolate in case his wife had passed it on.

“They both did tests which came back negative. The same with the cops which meant they could go back on duty.”

A spokesperson for Police Scotland confirmed that the force has the capacity to be flexible. The spokesperson commented: “We have sufficient capacity and as a national service Police Scotland can flex resources should there be a requirement to do so.”
