Default KY inmate tested for COVID-19, others quarantined as critics urge prisoner


A state prisoner with unspecified medical issues at the Northpoint Training Center in Burgin was tested for the novel coronavirus at a hospital Friday and then returned to custody and placed in quarantine until the test results are available.

Inmates who shared a dorm with the inmate also were quarantined, including one inmate sent 127 miles away to the Little Sandy Correctional Complex in Sandy Hook following an episode of violence that was unrelated to the health concerns, said Department of Corrections spokeswoman Lisa Lamb. That episode was believed to be gang-related, Lamb said.
