NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There’s a sign of hope coming from New York’s bravest.
That number includes members who tested positive, were exposed or suspected they had it.
Fire commissioner Daniel Nigro says the department is responding to a record number of medical calls.
The NYPD also had some good news.
The department tweeted a photo of Officer Prieto, saying he’s one of the first officers fully recovered from COVID-19.
