Virus Testing Complete at Local Detention Center

Wayne County Jailer Ronnie Ellis reports 112 Covid-19 tests were administered Thursday at the detention center.

These tests were offered to both staff and inmates, after a sub contractor who worked at the detention center tested positive earlier this week.  In addition to staff the jail  houses approximately 140 inmates. 

Test results could be back as early as Friday afternoon, however Ellis states no one is presently exhibiting symptoms at the facility.
