One additional COVID-19 positive at Middle River Regional Jail this week
That one positive pushes the total number of inmates testing positive at the jail since Nov. 25 to 559.
According to a release from the jail Thursday, officials are optimistic that the current outbreak is coming under control.
Staff have developed plans for a more rigid quarantining process of new arrests prior to their introduction into the general population.
Implementing the plan is challenging considering that the jail is currently operating at 200+ above capacity.
