COVID-19 Information as of September 8, 2020
Currently we have 0 positive cases of COVID-19 in the inmate population.
On Friday, June 5, 2020, 86 staff members and 230 inmates were tested for COVID-19. Out of those tested, one (1) staff and 25 inmates tested positive.
On Sunday, May 24, 2020 we conducted mass COVID-19 testing provided by Crater Health District with assistance from the VA National Guard. 140 inmates, 22 RRJA staff and 20 medical staff were tested. On Wednesday, May 27, 2020, test results were received with 35 inmates and 1 RRJA employee testing positive.
We have designated several living areas for quarantine. When inmates are initially booked in, they are placed in precautionary quarantine for 14 days. Once they are cleared, they are moved to general population.
Should an inmate test positive in general population, all inmates and staff that have been in contact are isolated and tested. If a significant number of inmates in that area were exposed, the entire living area is placed on isolation.
Staff that test positive are placed on leave until cleared by a physician.
