Four Broward Sheriff's Office employees and two officers with the Coral Gables police Department have tested positive for coronavirus, officials said Friday.
BSO officials said 207 deputies have had to self-isolate or self-monitor due to potential exposure to COVID-19. Of those 207, 83 have concluded the suggested isolation periods with no reported concerns.
The four employees who tested positive are recuperating and have been isolated, officials said.
In Coral Gables, Chief Edward Hudak said the two officers were in isolation prior to receiving the positive results.
"I am in contact with our officers daily and they are in good spirits while on the mend from this virus," Hudak said in a statement.
"The Coral Gables Police Department is following CDC guidelines and continuing to screen all members of our Police Department and staff every day they come to duty,."
