Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 132834.015 Event: 01/19/2021Employee With Covid-19 Infection Dies
An employee was a correctional officer guard in the dental triage area of the me dical unit. His job was to ensure that prisoners arrived for their appointment o n time. Sometimes he would go to their housing unit to get them and other times they would be brought to him by a CO. Inmates who came to the dental area were t ested for COVID-19 with a rapid test and taken away to quarantine if positive. O nce negative they could go in to see the dentist. Inmates and staff both wore su rgical masks. Getting prisoners into holding cells while they awaited the result s of the rapid tests would put prisoners and correctional officers within 6 feet for a short period. Otherwise, COs would be physical distance from prisoners. A fter becoming ill on or around December 7, 2020, the employee kept in touch with the duty sergeant and informed them on December 21, 2020, of the hospitalizatio n that occurred that same day. The employee died at the hospital at 4:00 p.m. on January 19, 2021.
