Jail Keeps Posting Coronavirus Goose Eggs

(La Porte, IN) - A perfect game against COVID-19 is still being pitched at the La Porte County Jail.  There hasn’t been one case of COVID-19 since the start of the pandemic, said La Porte County Sheriff John Boyd.


Boyd told the La Porte County Sheriff Merit Commission on Wednesday there have been challenges, like an uptick in the number of offenders at the jail recently and space running low for quarantining offenders as a precaution.  However, Boyd said staff members at the jail continue to pitch their way of the jams to keep the number of COVID-19 cases at zero.


Boyd said there were as many as 310 offenders in the jail recently.
