RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - Most of the Vermont State Police troopers who work the night shift out of the Rutland barracks are back at work after being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.

The nine troopers who were exposed represent the entire night shift. None have tested positive.

The troopers were exposed Dec. 29, but it’s unclear how.

State Police spokesman Adam Silverman said the troopers began quarantining early last week. He says the remaining troopers are expected to be back at work this week.

Silverman said that the state police were able to provide full coverage while the troopers were quarantining.
