EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – One El Paso Police Department officer is currently under self-quarantine after testing positive for COVID-19, officials confirmed.
The officer, who was only identified as a man, is the only one to test positive, a Police spokesman said on Monday.
This is the first EPPD officer to test positive. In March, one El Paso Fire Department firefighter tested positive. The firefighter was already self-isolating after returning from a trip when he tested positive.
No other firefighters have tested positive since then.
