An MPD spokesman confirmed that the department has had 24 coronavirus cases, as of Wednesday, and that a "vast majority" have since recovered and returned to work.

The Minneapolis Police Department, already faced with staffing shortages from a wave of departures since the George Floyd protests, has seen a rise in the number of employees testing positive for COVID-19, including three deputy chiefs and a senior civilian staff member who were all infected around the same time.

An MPD spokesman confirmed that the department has had 24 coronavirus cases as of Wednesday and that a "vast majority" have since recovered and returned to work.

"Our sworn personnel in the chief's office are all operational and working," said spokesman John Elder, who declined to give their ranks, citing medical privacy laws.
