In the nation’s capital, the pandemic infection rate within the jail has surpassed that of the city itself. The jail reported that 152 inmates had tested positive as of Sunday. One inmate has died. 61 Department of Corrections employees have been infected. 86 employees are off work after testing positive or quarantined after having come into contact with someone infected. That has meant extra and longer shifts for those employees who are able to work.
