DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said that nearly 900 Detroit police officers are back to work after being quarantined.

Speaking on Monday afternoon, Duggan also said that in the last seven days, there have only been seven new quarantines. At one point, they had 100 new quarantines a day.

That means, out of a 2,500 person department, they've averaged just one quarantine a day over the past week.

According to Duggan, that's because they have been committed to wearing masks, taking temperatures of officers every day, and social distancing.
