The Aurora Police Department has identified its first confirmed case of COVID-19 involving one of its employees.
A member of the department’s supervisory staff started feeling ill on March 17 and went home to seek medical treatment, which included being tested for COVID-19. As directed by health officials, the staff member immediately self-quarantined at home while awaiting the results.
We were notified late yesterday by the Kendall County Health Department that the test result was positive for COVID-19. Thorough cleaning and disinfecting of the involved employee’s work area has been completed.
The staff member’s condition is already improving with the expectation of making a full recovery. The staff member lives outside of Aurora.
The Aurora Police Department will continue to monitor the health of its workforce and workspaces in all facilities, and we will act swiftly should anyone exhibit symptoms of the virus.
