LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - One work release participant at the Tippecanoe County Community Corrections Center has tested positive for coronavirus. Jason Huber is the Executive Director for the center. He confirmed this with News 18 Tuesday afternoon.

Huber said the person is in work release. He could not comment on where the person works. He also could not comment on if the participants are being held on lockdown in the building.

He said the participant is currently in isolation and isn't a threat to anyone else. He says they are in close communication with local and state health leaders.

"We are working with local and state officials as we work through this situation to ensure the safety and security of both staff and participants," he said.

Huber said they are working with the Indiana State Department of Health to increase testing. They are anticipating the ISDH Strike team to be up here to conduct the testing in the next day or two. In the meantime, they have increased the amount of cleaning and disinfecting inside.

"We've basically tripled the amount of cleaning and disinfecting that we are doing, we're taking personal hygiene and social distancing, following those guidelines," he said. "So really it's just continuing what we have been doing the entire time."

We reached out to Dr. Jeremy Adler from the Tippecanoe County Health Department.

 "Per Indiana State Department of Health policy, the Tippecanoe County Health Department is unable to provide comments or details about outbreaks involving fewer than five cases," he said.
