BY CRISTINA HOWORUN

POSTED MAR 20, 2020 7:19 AM EDT LAST UPDATED MAR 20, 2020 AT 7:39 AM EDT

“The officer worked in several areas of the facility.

It’s still not clear how many inmates may have had contact with the man in question.

Several officers with whom he had contact have been placed in self-isolation.”

…”The man in his 40s had recently returned from Europe and reported to work before the “14-day isolation” guidelines came into effect. Once the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended self isolation for all travellers, he did so on his own accord. The Ministry of the Solicitor General had not yet adopted that protocol.”
