ANDERSON — A state strike force has been requested to return to the Madison County Community Corrections in Anderson after 13 of the 32 offenders tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
Mason Brizendine, MCCC executive director, said Monday the recreation room is being used to house offenders who have tested positive. Brizendine said there are nine offenders still at the work release center.
Madison County Health Department Administrator Stephenie Grimes said the state task force was in the county corrections buildings on Wednesday and the positive tests were reported starting on Friday.
“That was 11 of the 17 positive tests we had over the weekend,” she said.
