Autopsy To Determine Cause Of York County Jail Inmate's Death

An inmate at the York County Jail has died and it's unclear whether the death is related to an outbreak of COVID-19 there. York County Sheriff William King says he is awaiting the results of an autopsy.  

Citing privacy rules, King declined to say whether the man had previously tested positive for COVID-19.  The man's name is also not being released pending the notification of relatives.
