Unvaccinated Police Officer Dies of COVID-19

Officer Jack Nyce, 46, has died after being stricken by COVID-19 after missing the city’s deadline to be inoculated and being placed on leave for failing to follow the health safety rules.

Officers who have still not complied with the city’s vaccine mandate by Nov. 13 will be shifted to unpaid administrative leave, until the Police Commission convenes a hearing.

The officer’s wife declined to say whether her husband was vaccinated but police Lt. Tracy McCray, vice president of the San Francisco Police Officers Association, said he was on a 30-day stint of paid administrative leave at the time of his death because he had not received his vaccination as required by the city.

The San Francisco Police Department said last week that as many as 70 sworn and civilian workers had been placed on leave for not meeting a Nov. 1 vaccination deadline. A press release said that as of Nov. 2, 97.5% of department employees were fully vaccinated.
