The first known case of an inmate in Oregon testing positive for the Coronavirus was announced today by the Oregon Department of Corrections. They did not release much information. They said the inmate was at Santiam Correctional Institution and that the inmate has since been moved to a medical facility. ODOC spokesperson Colette S. Peters claims the ODOC has been preparing for Coronavirus, but that sounds more like just trying to avoid a panic. No jail, prison, or other type of correctional institution is prepared for Coronavirus.

An employee at the Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP) in Salem tested positive yesterday.
