DC Department of Corrections reports its fifth positive case of COVID-19

Monday, March 30, 2020

This evening, DC Department of Corrections (DC DOC) was notified that a fifth resident in DOC custody has tested positive for COVID-19.


The individual, a 37-year-old male, was previously housed in the Correctional Treatment Facility (CTF), D Building, before being moved to the quarantine unit on March 26th as a precautionary measure after an individual from their unit tested positive for COVID-19.


He is currently in isolation in the Special Management Unit B (SMUB) and being monitored according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.


DC DOC’s Medical Department and Unity Health Care will continue working with DC Health on contact tracing and to protect the health and wellbeing of individuals in DOC’s facilities.


Take care of yourself and one another. If you feel sick, do not come to work. Your health and safety are our top priority.
