MESSAGE FROM DIRECTOR TEWALT

Hi all-

On Wednesday, we learned of our first positive case among the incarcerated population. Yesterday we added two additional positive cases for a total of three. All three individuals were residing in one housing unit, E block, at ISCC when they became symptomatic. E block is a divided into three tiers and so far, all of the positive cases have been in the same tier. That entire housing unit has been in quarantine since yesterday and will remain so for 14 days so we can monitor the population for the new cases.

ISCC has been placed into secure status so that we can conduct necessary contact tracing and prevent additional exposure to COVID-19. This means that programming activities have temporarily stopped. Once weve been able to fully assess the situation and determine its safe to do so, well resume programming. Well work with the Parole Commission as programming interruptions occur to try to prevent it having any negative impacts on your parole release.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of COVID-19, which most frequently include: fever or chills, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, nausea/vomiting, and cough, please notify medical staff immediately. As a reminder, copayments are being waived if you believe you have COVID-19 symptoms.

The CDC continues to recommend good handwashing and the wearing of cloth masks to help keep everyone healthy and safe. We urge you to take these precautions.

Thanks-

Josh
