Union calls outbreak at Calgary Correctional Centre a ‘horror story’ as COVID-19 infects 65% of inmates


As the Calgary Correctional Centre faces a COVID-19 outbreak that has infected 65 per cent of its inmates and 20 employees, the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees says it’s being told by workers within the centre that conditions are horrible and many preventative measures are only just being put into place. Updated numbers released late Friday from the office of the Alberta justice and solicitor general show that a total of 112 inmates have tested positive for coronavirus out of 161 inmates currently at the centre. Eight of those positive cases were released and instructed to isolate at home after completing their sentences, Alberta Health Services said.
