An outbreak of COVID-19 has been declared at the Monteith Correctional Complex.
All the Porcupine Health is saying about it is that it “is working closely with the congregate setting to ensure ongoing measures are maintained to protect inmates and staff”. It’s also working with affected individuals on monitoring, isolation and testing; and is working with administration on infection prevention and control assessments.
It does not say how many cases there, how they’re split between inmates and staff, or what percentage of inmates infected. My Timmins Now Dot Com has asked for that information.
