The BSO Public Information Office is currently working a developing incident regarding a positive COVID-19 inmates located at: N/A.

Public Information Officer Veda Coleman-Wright is currently gathering the details. Here’s what we know so far:

An inmate who was housed at the Broward Sheriff’s Office North Broward Bureau has tested positive for COVID-19.

The inmate’s identity and arrest details are being withheld in order to protect his right to medical privacy. When the inmate was arrested in March, he was medically screened during booking and showed no signs of COVID-19.

On March 31, during a routine screening, the inmate refused a medical test (not related to COVID-19) recommended by healthcare staff. As a result, he was transported to the hospital for evaluation and treatment. At the hospital, he was tested for COVID-19 and confirmed positive on April 1.

After being notified of the inmate’s status, the housing units where he has been were placed in quarantine as a precaution. Medical staff will continue to monitor the inmates for any signs and symptoms of COVID-19.

The Department of Health (DOH) has been notified. Staff who were in contact with the inmate have been notified and are being advised to self-isolate, self-monitor and contact the DOH for further instructions. The arresting officer who works at a police department in Broward County has been notified as well.

As of this writing, the Department of Detention has been notified a second inmate tested positive April 2. Details from today’s positive case will be released when available.

Arrangements are being made to decontaminate affected areas.

This information should be considered preliminary, and as with any developing situation, the details may change.

    Satz has no conscience. His staff were begging judges for this whole month to keep even misdemeanor defendants and nonviolent 3rd degrees in jail because they were going to get out and infect the community!

      Maybe Judge Tuter will sign an order like others have giving Sheriff T the ability to cut them loose with NOA’s before this gets worse.

    There are no positive cases in the jail because no one gets tested in the jail. The positive test came from the hospital after the inmate was transported there for other unrelated reasons. If they actually tested an inmate, the numbers would soar.

      it’s like favorable and exculpatory evidence—no one knows about it because it remains “undiscovered” by lack of investigation, to facilitate team Satz and his ASSAs who are trained no to care, in order to get that conviction regardless of the ‘”truth, the WHOLE truth and nothing but the truth seeking function of the state” because the Bar Rules allow them to claim “I did not know, so therefore I am not responsible or culpable,” but then deny error on appeals as SOP.

    Well, to be SAFE–“Staff who were in contact with the inmate” all need to quarantined, too. For the safety of everyone. Seems fair and equal, don’t it?

    You won’t catch me going into any jail anytime soon ! Or into the courthouse until this is all over. Hope they plan on cleaning the place. Its smells like a sewer break.

      The courthouse needs to remain closed until further notice until this is over. Why risk getting anyone sick or spreading it around to others by making people come into the courthouse. The courthouse needs to completely cleaned and sanitized professionally before they even consider letting us back into work.
