Val Martinez is a loving partner to Megan Flynn and soon to be father of twin boys that are due in November. In late May of 2020, Val tested positive for COVID-19. It is believed he contracted the virus at work. Val is a valued colleague within the Los Angeles Police Department and has served our community since 2007. He fought COVID at home for one week before being rushed to Henry Mayo Hospital in Santa Clarita with worsening symptoms. Val was transferred to the ICU at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica on June 10th in order to be placed on a ECMO machine, as his symptoms grew more dire. The doctors at Providence are taking Val's case day by day and doing their best to help him fight.
