Three LBPD Employees Tested Positive for Coronavirus


City officials reported three additional Long Beach Police and two Fire Department employees have tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

Details:

Of the three "public-facing" LBPD employees who have tested positive, two are assigned to the police department's South Division, and another employee is from the Field Support Division.

  • One Fire Department employee, based out of Fire Station 19, has tested positive for the virus, is not a Long Beach resident, and was last at work on Nov. 19 and is now recovering at home.

Why it matters:

Since early November, health officials have been investigating a Cornavirus outbreak within the police department. Everytime there is an outbreak, employees who possibly have been exposed to the virus get tested, and job sites are cleaned, per LBP.

  • On Monday, the city reported that six Long Beach Police Department and two Fire department employees tested positive for the virus.

  • Out of the six LBPD infected employees, four are from the South Division; one provides Airport Security Detail and another employee reports to the Park Ranger Station.

  • Two Fire Department employees have tested positive for COVID-19, including An employee assigned to Fire Station 1 and an employee assigned to Fire Station 16.
