Correctional Officer Kenneth Moore died after contracting COVID-19 during a presumed exposure two weeks earlier while on duty at the District of Columbia Superior Court.
Officer Moore had served with the District of Columbia Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services for 16 years. He is survived by his children, stepchildren, and grandchildren.
In early 2020, thousands of law enforcement officers and other first responders throughout the country contracted COVID-19 during the worldwide pandemic due to requirements of their job. Many of these first responders died as a result of COVID-19.
