184 Positive COVID-19 Tests Returned Friday At WCI


We told you earlier this week of the testing being done at Waupun Correctional Institution. Testing has been completed on over 1,100 inmates, with 184 positive cases being confirmed Friday. Only half of the tests have been processed, but the early results are showing anywhere between 12% and 20% of the inmates in the prison infected with COVID-19. The Department of Corrections says the majority of those coming back as positive were asymptomatic. Inmates who do test positive will be separated from the rest of the inmates and will be monitored by health care workers. The DOC also said they currently have a combination of 52 inmates and staff in isolation because they’ve shown signs of symptoms, and another 872 quarantined, due to possible exposure to the coronavirus.
