OPSO DEPUTIES, ON THE FRONTLINES OF COVID-19, TREATED TO LUNCH BY ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA SORORITY

NEW ORLEANS - Updated 05-21-2020

Today the Omicron Lambda Omega Chapter of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority delivered catered lunches to the deputies and staff at the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office. During its 110-year history, the AKAs have partnered with local organizations to provide service keeping with its theme "Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service."

"Our deputies have been on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic and I'm pleased that their dedication and hard work is being noticed by the AKAs," said Sheriff Marlin Gusman. "Our deputies are taking the necessary steps to protect the public, our staff and our inmates and minimize the spread of the coronavirus."

On hand to express their thanks to OPSO deputies were Orleans Criminal District Court Judge Tracey Flemings-Davillier, and Assistant U.S. Attorney Brittany Reed, members of the local AKA chapter. "We know this has not been an easy time for OPSO deputies since the pandemic began, so our organization wanted to let deputies and staff know how much we appreciate their efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19," said Judge Flemings-Davillier.

Lunch, which came from Neyow's Creole Cafe, included fried fish, jambalaya, green peas and bread pudding.

NEW ORLEANS - Updated 05-29-2020

Following is a joint statement from Sheriff Marlin Gusman and Compliance Director Darnley R. Hodge regarding ongoing health monitoring of inmates and OPSO staff and contractors, as well as established precautions at the Orleans Justice Center (OJC) related COVID-19 prevention and treatment:

TODAY'S UPDATE:

"Over the past 24 hours, 37 additional OPSO employees tested negative for COVID-19 bringing the total number of negative cases to 712. As previously reported, out of the 74 employees that have tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic, 40 have recovered and returned to work and three employees passed away. In total, 837 employees have been tested since the beginning of the pandemic with 51 results still pending.

The status of OPSO's contracted medical provider, Wellpath, remains the same with one positive case and 14 individuals who have recovered and returned to work. A total of 118 Wellpath employees have been tested to date with 95 testing negative and eight results still pending.

As previously reported, 19 employees of OPSO's food vendor, Summit, have been tested. Of those tested, one prospective employee tested positive and 18 received negative test results. The individual who tested positive was an applicant and was screened as a part of the hiring process. This individual did not work on OPSO property and was not around the staff or inmate population.

Forty-two inmates remain positive and are medically segregated for the safety of themselves, other inmates and our staff. Of the 172 positive inmate cases to date, 45 have recovered.

In total, 1,029 inmates have been tested since the beginning of the pandemic. Of those, 850 have tested negative and the results of seven tests have not been received but are expected to return in coming days. Currently, seven inmates have refused testing and are under quarantine.

Our current inmate population is 838 with 773 at the Orleans Justice Center."
