Information about operational procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Incarcerated Individuals Testing Information

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. Two individuals were released from VT correctional facilities before being deemed “in recovery.” Thus, those individuals’ COVID status is unknown and they were not included in the Individuals in Recovery data point.

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 positive tests 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 Test 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 ill persons (positive Covid-19 test and/or the presence of symptoms: fever, cough or respiratory distress) from those who are not ill in order to prevent the spread of disease-causing germs.

 

 

 

Incarcerated Individuals Testing Information by Race

The In-State and Out-of-State Incarcerated Population COVID Testing by Race Tables include race details for all individuals who were tested while housed in Vermont in-state and out-of-state correctional facilities, separately.

The Point-in-Time Total Incarcerated Population Race Data Tables include race details for all individuals incarcerated in Vermont in-state and out-of-state correctional facilities, separately. These are point-in-time analyses, so this information is accurate as of 10pm on the date listed on the table. THESE TABLES DO NOT REFLECT COVID-19 RACE DETAILS, BUT ARE PROVIDED AS REFERENCE FOR THE COVID TESTING BY RACE TABLES.

NOTE: Incarcerated Population Testing Information by Race will be updated less frequently than the other Trackers provided on this page.
