3. Immigrant detention/baby jails too. Especially since just about every branch of the government

has decided that they have fewer rights. Less oversight, less recourse, fewer avenues to sound an alarm even than our awful prison/jail system.

11 inmates, 23 others quarantined in Delco after county jail staffer tests positive

Thirty-four people in Delaware County, including 11 inmates, are being quarantined after a staff member at the county jail tested positive for the coronavirus, according to documents obtained by the Inquirer.

An employee at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility was one of five new cases discovered in Delaware County on Friday. Officials from The GEO Group, the private-prisons company that operates the facility, believe that the employee contracted the disease from one of his relatives, who had previously tested positive for the coronavirus in Montgomery County, warden David Byrne wrote in a letter sent to jail employees and obtained by the Inquirer. The employee’s relative had come into contact with someone who had recently traveled to China.
