Employee at Maury Correctional Instituion has tested positive for COVID-19

If you have a loved one incarcerated in North Carolina at the Maury Correctional Institution, you may want to ask them how they are doing when you speak to them again.

NCDPS officials say that a staff member at the prison has self-reported testing positive for COVID-19.

The employee reported the positive test results to the prison Monday, according to officials. 

It has been said that the employee was exposed to a family member who tested positive for the virus.

The employee has been taken off the job and has been ever since March 26, when the COVID-19 test swab was taken and sent to a lab for processing.

While NCDPS is not certain, they do believe the employee had only very limited interactions with the offender population. 

The North Carolina Beat has confirmed that this employee is a correctional officer. 

The employee worked two blocks full of offenders and they all have been given masks.

NCDPS says no offender has tested positive for COVID-19 in any North Carolina prison.
