Information about operational procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Incarcerated Individuals Testing Information

Due to recent changes to the in-state facility COVID mitigation protocol, quarantine will no longer be required for new incarcerated intakes. All intakes will be administered a LAMP COVID test, which is a nasal swab with similar accuracy to the PCR tests previously utilized, but results are provided within an hour and do not require a lab. Additionally, medical isolation placements have changed to only include those who are COVID positive or those who refuse a LAMP COVID test at intake. Thus, the following fields are no longer included on the In-State Incarcerated Individuals COVID Tracker: Total Incarcerated Individuals Tested; Total Tests Conducted: Positive Results, Negative Results, Pending Test Results.

COVID Testing Tracking information updates are disseminated on Mondays and Thursdays each week. In the event of a state holiday coinciding with these days, information will be provided on the nearest work day.

The top table – In-State Incarcerated Individuals COVID Tracking - shows the TOTAL counts in each category as of the reporting start date of March 23, 2020.

The second table –Out-of-State Incarcerated Individuals COVID Tracking – provides COVID 19 testing updates for Vermont individuals incarcerated at Tallahatchie County Correctional Facility (TCCF) in Mississippi.  

The bottom table- Incarcerated Individuals Total COVID Tracking by Facility – shows the number of current positive incarcerated individuals and total unique positive cases based on the location of the individual at the time of the test. If an individual is moved to another facility after testing positive, they will be reported as a positive test for the facility of origin. Data are provided from the start date of March 23, 2020 to the current date. Most Recent Positive Case reflects the most recent date that an individual with a positive result was tested. This DOES NOT reflect the date in which the result was received and disseminated.

These reports are accurate as of 2:00pm on the report date. Information in red indicates new information since the last report.

Medical Isolation refers to the physical separation of either COVID-positive individuals or those who refuse intake COVID testing from those who are not ill in order to prevent the spread of the virus.
