State police announced Monday night the York station is temporarily closed for cleaning after a positive COVID-19 test result.
Phone calls for Troop J York were rerouted to the Troop J Lancaster headquarters at 3 p.m. Monday, according to a news release.
It is unclear when the York station, located in Loganiville, will reopen.
Statewide, there are currently eight enlisted and three civilian personnel on leave due to a positive COVID-19 test, state police said. Totals for individual troops or stations will not be released.
