Shortly after a Chicago police detective tested positive for COVID-19 this week, a cleaning crew walked into CPD’s Area Central headquarters.
Three workers dressed in white coveralls, hoods, gloves, masks, and eye goggles cleaned the officer’s desk, and taped a Word-generated sign on his computer screen that says “Do not use!!!”
Then, they left.
That’s all according to a source who provided photos of the crew in action.
While the crew was fully geared up for the “cleaning,” on-duty officers continued working nearby.
“They didn’t even empty the [work area] when the cleaning was happening,” the source said.
On Friday, CPD announced that 10 more members of the department tested positive for COVID-19 since the day before. A total of 20 cops and one civilian employee have contracted the disease as of that announcement, the department said.
