Spokesperson Sarah Gallagher said in an email that because many staff members receive vaccinations in the community, they’re not able to track the total number.
Hiland Mountain Correctional Center has 109 active cases of COVID-19 as of Monday. That’s up from just three cases a week ago.
This comes after two more staff members tested positive for the disease this week, more than a month after the first case was detected at the facility. So far, 10 staff members at the facility have contracted the virus.
The statewide union that represents correctional officers is still waiting for more information from the Department of Corrections after asking for help finding temporary housing for officers.
