Here's an Everett Herald article published a few hours ago

"CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK: COVID-19 outbreak worsens at Monroe prison"

Six incarcerated men and five employees have reportedly tested positive for the virus.

MONROE — An outbreak of COVID-19 at the Monroe Correctional Complex is shining a bright light on a legal effort to force a large-scale release of prisoners who are most at risk of death if infected by the virus.

Six inmates — all housed in the same minimum security unit — as well as five staff have now tested positive, according to figures released Wednesday afternoon by the state Department of Corrections.

“Now that it is an outbreak, it is really concerning,” said Benjamin McNair, an inmate housed in the separate Washington State Reformatory unit of the prison complex. “If it comes here, it will go though this place like wildfire.”

And today's Seattle Times article

"Police respond to disturbance involving hundreds of inmates at Monroe Correctional Complex".

State and local police brought a large disturbance at Monroe Correctional Complex under control Wednesday evening, after a couple hundred inmates concerned about the facility’s COVID-19 outbreak threatened to set fires and possibly take corrections officers hostage.

The disturbance began in the prison’s recreation yard around 6 p.m., according to a statement from the state Department of Corrections (DOC). Fire extinguishers were set off in two housing units within the minimum-security unit, creating the appearance of smoke from the outside, the statement said.
