Several inmates at the Dubuque County jail have tested positive for COVID-19. Sheriff Joe Kennedy says on June 10th, 5 prisoners were transported to the Iowa Medical Classification Center in Coralville. Before being transported the inmates were tested for COVID-19, and all 5 were negative. Kennedy says yesterday his office learned that 3 of the prisoners tested positive while incarcerated at IMCC. He says an inmate that is in the country jail and who was waiting to be transported to IMCC has tested positive for the virus.
