In-person classes for new law enforcement officers are suspended for at least a week at the Wayne County Regional Police Training Academy because eight cadets tested positive for Covid.

Wayne County Reserve Deputy Tasha Green, a Westland City Council member, was among last summer's graduates.

Schoolcraft College, which runs the program in Livionia, "is pausing all face-to-face instruction" at the academy until Nov. 9. Cadets "will use distance learning formats to complete their coursework during this time," an announcement says. "We fully expect this class will graduate on time in November."

County Health Department investigators are working with the community college on tracing, according to WXYZ.

In Lansing on Monday, the state added 3,881 new Covid cases and 29 more deaths. That brings Michiugan's number of diagnoses since March to 161,907 and total deaths to 7,211.
