The New York Police Department canceled all scheduled days off for uniformed officers this New Year’s Eve and day. 

"In order to provide police coverage for New Year’s celebrations in Times Square and for precincts throughout the city, the NYPD has ordered all uniformed members of the service who would regularly be off to report for duty," an NYPD spokesperson told Fox News on Wednesday. 

"Effective Friday, Dec. 31 and Saturday, Jan. 1, all uniformed members regular days off are cancelled and they are to report to their respective commands for their assigned tour."

All cops who were scheduled off must now work due to an increase in officers calling out sick with COVID-19, sources told the New York Daily News. 

Roughly 16% of the force, about 6,000 officers, called out sick this week, the New York Daily News reported. About 1,300 officers have tested positive for the coronavirus, according to sources.
