TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) — Three inmates have tested positive for COVID-19 at the federal prison complex in Terre Haute, according to the federal government.

The U.S. Bureau of Prisons' coronavirus website shows that as of Monday three inmates but no staffers have tested positive for COVID-19 at the U.S. Penitentiary, which is the maximum security prison at the Federal Correctional Complex.

That website shows that no deaths from the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus have occurred at the western Indiana prisons complex that's located about 70 miles (113 kilometers) west of Indianapolis, the Tribune-Star reported.

Nationwide, the website shows that there have been 59 federal inmate deaths but no prison staff member deaths attributed to COVID-19 disease, the website shows.

But 1,556 federal inmates and 175 Bureau of Prisons staffers have confirmed positive test results for COVID-19, according to the website. As of Monday, 3,144 inmates and 414 staff have recovered from the coronavirus.

The Bureau of Prisons has 136,968 federal inmates in Bureau of Prisons-managed institutions and 12,109 in community-based facilities. The federal agency has about 36,000 staff members.
