This past week, the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department in cooperation with the Wisconsin National Guard completed COVID-19 testing of approximately 250 employees and 464 inmates. The testing has identified 0 employees and 3 inmates that tested positive for COVID-19.
The health of our employees and the care of hundreds of inmates within our facility is a top priority. Sheriff Beth said, “this proactive testing and the results assures us that our current practice of testing inmates upon entering our jail, quarantining if appropriate and utilizing PPE consistently seems to be working.”
The Sheriff’s Department continues to work closely with the Kenosha County Division of Health and follow their guidance, as well as information from the Wisconsin Department of Health Service and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
