Statement on the Passing of a Member of Service

“Last night, a member of DOC staff who had tested positive for COVID-19 passed away at a local hospital.  This person was an investigator, who for at least a month, had no contact with people in custody. We are heartbroken and send our deepest condolences to our colleague’s family, loved ones, and co-workers.” – Cynthia Brann, NYC Department of Correction Commissioner
