CALIFORNIA JUVENILE PRISONS SUSPEND INTAKES

A coronavirus outbreak at a youth correctional facility in Ventura County had climbed to 47 cases by Thursday.

Ventura County Public Health officials said 39 youths and eight employees have now tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19.

The first case at the Ventura Youth Correctional Facility near Camarillo was reported July 17.

A week later, 21 youths and 1 employee had tested positive. Now, that number has more than doubled.

Along with the Ventura County facility, the agency has a youth correctional complex in Stockton and a forestry camp in Northern California. In all, they hold around 700 to 800 juveniles and young adults.

As of Friday, the agency said 64 youths have tested positive within a DJJ facility. The first case was identified June 14.
