This evening, DC Department of Corrections (DC DOC) was notified that a 20-year-old male in DOC custody tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was previously housed in the Correctional Treatment Facility (CTF), D Building.
He is currently in isolation in the infirmary and being monitored according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines. For the last five days, the resident was housed in a single-occupancy cell.
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.
