NEW ORLEANS - 07-28-2020

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:

"From July 8 to July 10, the Orleans Parish Sheriff's Office conducted phase two of COVID-19 testing as a way to proactively monitor the status of the virus within our facilities. Throughout this process, 658 OPSO staff were tested and 653 tested negative bringing the total number of current positive staff cases to five. As previously reported, three employees unfortunately passed away due to COVID-19.

Additionally, 104 employees of OPSO's contracted medical provider, Wellpath, were tested in phase two. Of those tests, one came back positive and the remaining were negative. Regarding OPSO's contract staff, 48 were tested and two tests came back positive.

At the Orleans Justice Center, 738 inmates have been tested in phase two. Of those tests, 644 were negative and 14 inmates tested positive. The results of 80 remaining tests have not been received and are expected to return in coming days. Individuals who tested positive are segregated from the general inmate population in addition to the 11 inmates who refused testing.

We have remained vigilant in our efforts to eradicate the virus from within our facilities and are continuing to take all of the necessary precautions.

There are currently 808 inmates in OPSO custody with 751 at the Orleans Justice Center."
