Nearly 20% of the New York Police Department’s uniformed

Nearly 20% of the New York Police Department’s uniformed workforce are out sick, but some officers are returning to work
On Friday, 6,698 uniformed members of the New York Police Department — accounting for 18.5% of the Department’s uniformed workforce — were out sick, according to a daily NYPD coronavirus report.
Currently, 1,775 uniformed members of the force and 260 civilian members have tested positive for Covid-19, the report says.
About 50 NYPD members returned to work after being out sick due to the virus on Friday, a law enforcement source told CNN.
““Now we’re getting the first wave back,” said the official. “By next week, we could be getting hundreds back.””
NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea previously said that while the force was not close to implementing 12-hour shifts, they would do so if staffing levels made it necessary.
