Elk County Prison

RIDGWAY--After a year of the Elk County Prison being COVID-19 free, twelve cases were confirmed among the inmates in a small outbreak that began on April 1 on Tuesday. After a retesting of the facility, the number of positive cases has dropped to ten. While the testing kits are very accurate for COVID-19, human error and basic statistical modeling reported by the CDC indicate that "False-Positive" tests could occur on average about 4% of the time.
