Prison officials in Delaware County are scrambling to figure out a plan after nearly one dozen inmates have been quarantined inside the prison after a coronavirus outbreak that stemmed from a prison guard, Your Content has learned.

Thirty-four people in Delaware County, including 11 inmates, remain quarantined over the virus outbreak.

“On March 13, we received confirmation that an employee at the George W. Hill Correctional Facility has tested positive for COVID-19,” a statement issued by the GEO Group Inc., the private firm that operates the 1,883-inmate prison, read on Friday night. “We believe that a family member of the employee, who works in Montgomery County and who also tested positive for the coronavirus, had contact with an individual who recently traveled to China.”

Following guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, GEO said it advised other employees who had recent contact with the individual who tested positive to self-quarantine at home with full pay during that time.

Your Content was first to report that the prison holding comedian Bill Cosby is also on red alert after a guard tested positive for the deadly disease.

The building is owned by Delaware County but managed and operated by The GEO Group, a ruthless Florida-based company that claims to specialize in privatized corrections, detention, and mental health treatment. They maintain facilities in North America, Australia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. 

The fanatical execs behind the for-profit private prison are accused of being engaged in a sordid Nixon-style corruption operation to cover up the scope of their liability during a Christmas mass-overdose at George W. Hill Correctional Facility.

GEO informed local media they intend to skip town on Dec. 2020, forcing county officials to make emergency arrangements with little notice.

This is a developing breaking news story. It will be updated momentarily.
