Police Commissioner Dermot Shea says 211 members of the department have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The commissioner says that includes 177 uniformed members and 34 civilian members.
He says 2,700 to 2,800 members are out sick, leaving the department with staffing issues.
"What we're seeing internally as an agency on the frontlines is, we are still on an upward climb," Shea said.
The NYPD says officers are being provided with gloves, masks, alcohol wipes and hand sanitizer.
