New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea has tested positive for COVID-19, the NYPD announced on Friday.

In a tweet, the department said that Shea is "doing well," and is running the police force remotely while working from home.

The department did not provide additional details about when Shea tested positive or where he may have contracted the virus.

More than 8,000 members of the NYPD have tested positive for coronavirus since the pandemic began, and 48 have died from the illness.

The department has faced repeated criticism for failing to wear masks and abide by public health guidelines, particularly while policing protests this summer.

In June, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he had "this conversation with Commissioner Shea multiple times" about cops' failure to wear masks.

Two months later, the police commissioner shared a video of a large and apparently illegal indoor gathering inside police headquarters, featuring dozens of people without masks.

The city initially planned to begin administering vaccine doses to NYPD officers this week, though that plan has since been quashed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.
