Sgt. Jeremy McClure with the department released a statement Thursday confirming that the virus had reached the office's ranks, but said the department would not release which or even how many employees have been infected in an effort to protect their privacy.
McClure says the department's essential services have not been affected and that the department maintains “full capabilities to respond to 911 and citizen calls for service.”
