Outbreaks Persist in Folsom State Prison & Avenal State Prison, CDCR Population Remains Steady at 100,000 – Breaking Down COVID-19 in CDCR

Share:

As of September 24, there have been 13,332 confirmed cases of COVID-19 throughout the CDCR system. Of those cases, 11,079 have been resolved while 1,774 remain active in custody.

  • San Quentin Prison (SQ) now only has three active cases in custody. SQ has resolved 96% of its total cases.
  • Overnight, Substance Abuse Treatment Facility (SATF) resolved 18 cases. SATF has tested 15% of its population in the last two weeks.
  • Folsom State Prison confirmed 104 more cases overnight.
  • Valley State Prison (VSP) reported 15 new cases today.

Note: The definition of tested aligns with that prescribed by Johns Hopkins University. The tested count reported by a facility includes the total number of tests for which results have returned and not the total number of tests administered.
