CEDAR COUNTY, Mo. — Five inmates at Cedar County Jail have tested positive for COVID-19 as well as Sheriff James McCrary and a staff member.
The county’s sheriff’s office recently sent two inmates to the Missouri Department of Corrections that tested positive for COVID-19 after arriving at DOC.
Sheriff James McCrary says after learning of this he had himself, staff, and inmates tested and learned today they tested positive; possibly due to a trip to another county.
The sheriff’s office is now working with Cedar County Health Department. Sheriff McCrary notes in a Facebook post that none of the inmates have shown symptoms or appear to be sick at the moment.
