The COVID testing “plan” for the Escambia County Jail continues to come up with more positives. This week the county has only tested two prisoners – both were positive.
Since early July, the jail has tested 212 prisoners – 151 were positive, making the positivity rate 71.2%.
The state is upset when the positivity rate for a state prison is around 40%.
Another 1200 prisoners in the Escambia County Jail have yet to be tested. We’ve been told Santa Rosa County has tested over half their inmates. Escambia only about 15%.
Why the cover-up?
