Proactively, Maricopa County Correctional Health Services is following the precautions recommended by the Maricopa County Department of Public Health in order to mitigate any potential spread of COVID-19. These precautions include:
• Inmates/Patients undergo additional screening at the time of intake or self-surrender to determine the presence of fever, respiratory infection, recent travel, or contact with persons who are known to be infected with COVID-19;
• Inmates/Patients who have a positive screening test for COVID-19 risk are rapidly triaged and placed in isolation;
• Symptomatic Inmates/Patients who have had contact with a person who is infected with COVID-19 (based on a lab test) or who have traveled to an affected geographic area will be tested for COVID-19 in collaboration with Maricopa County Public Health;
• Persons already in MCSO custody who present with symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be tested in accordance with Maricopa County Public Health guidelines.
Correctional Health Services remains vigilant in its efforts to use all resources at its disposal to maintain the safety and security of our patients, staff and the public at large.
