Cuyahoga County Jail warden resigns amid investigations, while self-isolating from coronavirus concerns

  Cuyahoga County Jail warden resigns amid investigations, while self-isolating from coronavirus concerns CLEVELAND, Ohio-- Cuyahoga County Jail Warden Gregory Croucher resigned Thursday amid two investigations into his conduct, and just days after he went into the jail after his return from an overseas vacation without going through the county’s mandated coronavirus screenings. Croucher was hired as warden in August after the former jail warden, Eric Ivey, was charged and convicted of misconduct during a string of deaths at the jail in 2018. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

The crisis has proven that European solidarity, only exists “on paper,” Vucic said , citing the ban on the export of medical equipment and supplies imposed by Serbia received five million masks from China that it couldn’t get in Europe and an offer to send doctors to help tackle the disease, the president said .

Coronavirus has exposed stark divides in US society as the wealthy hole up in their homes and the poor are reduced to delivering their supplies in often-unsafe conditions. It took decades for the US to reach its current peak level of income inequality, decades in which the average person was too busy

This is the first reported positive COVID-19 case among jails in the Tampa Bay region.

A Florida Department of Health investigation showed there were two days where the deputy could have come into contact with others, and the jail has since assessed all inmates who could have been exposed. No one fell ill during that time, and the 14-day window when symptoms could appear has since passed, according to the sheriff’s office.

Gualtieri said there were likely about 40 inmates who were screened by jail medical staff on Saturday.

To reduce the risk, Gualtieri said the sheriff’s office has been working to release inmates and book fewer people into jail. The inmate population is down by about 1,100 people, and daily bookings went from 130 people a day to about 30, he said. Still, there is national concern about jails becoming a point of infection because of how frequently people come in, bond out, and then go about their lives in the community.

It ’ s very important. Each of us has the power through our own choices and actions to save American lives and rescue the most vulnerable among us" This also stresses the importance of staying home and limiting exposure to other people.

It comes as prospects of a vaccine look slim for the foreseeable future. “ It takes literally several months, from two to five (to conduct preclinical studies),” Kraevoy said . Russia has , so far, recorded two cases; both of the sufferers are Chinese citizens.

But Gualtieri said in Pinellas, they’ve created a “wall” that reduces the risk.

When a new inmate is booked, they are put in an isolation wing and monitored for symptoms for 14 days before they can go to a general housing unit, he said. If they show symptoms, they’re moved to another isolation wing. Before the coronavirus outbreak, a new inmate would be moved into a housing unit immediately.

“I can’t speak to the concerns that are being raised about other jails in Florida or the country, but I can tell you our process here is creating a wall between the people who are coming in and the people who are already there,” he said.
