The positive COVID-19 results have been reported to the Ohio Bureau of Adult Detention as required, the sheriff said. Grey said inmates have been offered to be vaccinated and personnel from the county health department come to the jail once a month to provide the vaccinations to inmates who want them.
The inmates who have tested positive are being quarantined and kept away from other jail population, Grey said in a press release. The inmates are under the care of the jail’s two full-time nurses and the jail physician. The affected inmates are currently experiencing mild symptoms and will be monitored.
