Coronavirus Case in Brooklyn MDC Jail After Judge Said Test Outstanding and 2 Staff

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Decrypt - LightRead - Honduras - Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, March 21 -- Updating on Coronavirus in the Federal prisons, at least those in New York, on March 20 SDNY Chief Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein said during an arraignment in largely empty Courtroom 24B that there were no cases but that one test from the MDC in Brooklyn remained outstanding. 

Inner City Press, the only media in the courtroom, reported it here.

  On March 21, the US Bureau of Prisons put on its website that there was one inmate in the MDC in Brooklyn who had tested positive. Photo here.

  BOP has also disclosed two staff positive, in Grand Prairie, Texas and Leavenworth, Kansas, after which the site added "no inmate contact." It was not entirely clear if that applied to both BOP staffers and locations.

   Now in the SDNY and EDNY, and presumably other Federal District Court, there are increasing requests for bond hearings to get detainees released. Inner City Press will be there, in the SDNY, and report on more. Watch this site.
