MADISON, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Corrections says there's been another coronavirus outbreak in a state prison.
The Racine Correctional Institution/Sturtevant Transitional Facility had 124 active COVID-19 cases among prisoners as of Tuesday, according to the DOC.
Two other prisons, Kettle Moraine Correctional Institution and Oshkosh Correctional Institution, are still in the midst of two large outbreaks. As of Tuesday, Kettle Moraine had 352 active cases among inmates and Oshkosh had 347.
Sturtevant is a small unit of Racine Correctional and is located adjacent to the larger prison. The facilities are counted as one prison on the DOC's data dashboard.
Among staff, 37 Racine Correctional employees have self-reported testing positive for COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic. Infected staff are directed to stay home and self-quarantine.
DOC's policy is for infected prisoners to be isolated and medically cared for, and exposed inmates to be quarantined.
Across all adult institutions, DOC reported 1,055 active COVID-19 cases among inmates and 145 active cases among staff, as of Tuesday, the State Journal reported.
