COVID-19 Situation – June 2021

We are sorry to announce that the Ashe County Detention Facility may be on the
verge of having our first COVID-19 outbreak.

This morning we received news of 2 inmates who were housed in the Ashe County
Detention Facility for Watauga County have tested positive for the corona virus
after spending time inside our facility. AppHealthCare notified the Sheriff’s Office
after the two inmates were returned to the Watauga Detention Facility and tested
positive for Covid 19 virus. We are following all recommended procedures by
AppHealthCare to get a full assessment of the situation.

While our primary functions are for the equal care of our staff and inmates who
work and reside here 24 hours a day, we want to assure everyone that we are taking
every precaution to keep all who are involved safe and the potential of spread
contained.

We are extremely fortunate to have a committed, compassionate staff who work as
a team for Ashe County. We have been extremely blessed up to this point that our
protocols and hard work in protecting everyone to this point has worked.
