The staff member began experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms while at work on Thursday, July 9, 2020. The employee was sent home and tested later that day. The staff member did not have any contact with inmates and wore a mask while working. She was confirmed to be COVID-19 positive on Saturday, July 11, 2020.

Contact tracing determined that the employee lives with a relative who recently tested positive, thus the infection does not appear to be job-related.
