No New Major Outbreaks Of COVID-19 At Texas Prisons

A recent report that has been circulating since last week that a new major outbreak had occurred at a TDCJ facility in Beeville is inaccurate.

TDCJ spokesperson Jeremy Desel confirmed that contrary to some reports, the rumor is unfounded.

”There is no major new out break anywhere” Desel told the Southside Light News. ”We have had results of mass testing if asymptomatic offenders and staff trickle in which are now beyond the 14 day quarantine date.”

While there has been a major uptick in new cases around the state, TDCJ is at least seemingly keeping things under control.

Desel was able to confirm that symptomatic testing has declined six weeks in a row.
