Sixty-four inmates have been quarantined or isolated but are not active cases, and one more is quarantined pending test results, it said.
“The inmates infected are isolated away from the other inmates,” Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody said. “We have been practicing quarantine for all inmates for 14 days since [the] pandemic started.”
On Aug. 6, all inmates were issued masks. Prior to that, masks were available for purchase through the inmate commissary, Chody confirmed.
WCSO reported its first confirmed cases of coronavirus July 19, Chody said.
