LOS ANGELES - The number of Los Angeles Police Department employees who have tested positive for COVID-19 has reached 77, officials said this weekend.
Of those cases, 33 have recovered and returned to full duty, one individual is hospitalized, and all other individuals are self-isolating at home and recovering, according to Jessica Kellogg, public information officer for the city Emergency Operations Center.
Kellogg also said the number of Los Angeles Fire Department employees who have tested positive for the virus remains at 20. That number has been unchanged for over a week. Fourteen LAFD personnel have recovered and returned to work, and none are hospitalized.
The remaining six employees are isolated and recovering at home, Kellogg said Saturday.
