The Baltimore City Sheriff’s Office confirmed Wednesday that two deputies have tested positive for coronavirus.
Maj. Sabrina Tapp-Harper said the deputies work in the unit that serves evictions, though that work has been on hold with evictions halted due to coronavirus. Tapp-Harper said the deputies were assigned to an office in the Elijah E. Cummings Courthouse, formerly known as Courthouse East, and that the facilities will receive a deep cleaning.
Tapp-Harper said services would not be disrupted, although it likely result in services involving other actions, including protective orders, being relocated to the Clarence Mitchell Courthouse.
Tapp-Harper said nine additional deputies have been placed on quarantine as a precaution.
The deputies who tested positive reported having family members that were determined to have COVID-19, but returned to work until they came down with symptoms themselves, Tapp-Harper said.
