By The Associated Press
TERRE HAUTE — A case of COVID-19 in an inmate has been reported at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, a prison workers union official said.
Members of American Federation of Government Employees Local 720 were notified Saturday that one inmate had tested positive for the disease caused by the coronavirus and that two staff persons had been exposed to it, union Vice President Vic Rubinacci told the Tribune-Star.
The infected inmate was housed in the maximum-security prison at the Federal Correctional Complex, he said.
Rubinacci said he was told prison staff planned to go through rosters Monday to compile a list of anyone who might have come in contact with the infected inmate.
The Bureau of Prison declined to give information about the Terre Haute complex and directed inquiries to the BOP’s Coronavirus resource page on its public website, www.bop.gov/coronavirus. It did not list the Terre Haute complex Monday among prisons with cases of COVID-19. The website reported 2,338 federal inmates and 196 staff with confirmed positive test results for COVID-19 nationwide.
