No COVID-19 Positives In New Round Of Testing At Windham Corrections Facility

A second round of testing of inmates and employees at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham has found no additional cases of COVID-19.

The Maine Department of Corrections Thursday announced the results of the universal testing, which it says was ordered to protect prisoners and staff in the wake of four positive diagnoses of inmates last month.

In all 299 employees and 452 inmates submitted a second sample, and the Department says all the results came back negative.
