CWA has been in discussions with the NYPD regarding our members that have underlying serious medical conditions such as heart disease, chronic lung disease, compromised immune systems, cancer and diabetes.

As we work through how to handle members with high risk medical conditions please notify your Commanding Officer when you report for duty that you fall into this category. If you’re unable to report because of one or more of the above medical conditions please make sure you call your command and the sick desk.
