800 deputies at the Chicago Police Department called out sick on Monday, reports say.

This comes after 50 officers have tested positive for the coronavirus, and one officer is currently in critical condition.

“And the rule that we have here is if you are near somebody positive and you’re symptomatic then you are automatically put on sick leave, on the medical,” Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in the Chicago Tribune report.
