State officials have confirmed that cases are on the rise at the Cayuga Correctional Facility.
It brought the total number of cases at the prison to 29.
DOCCS contends that those with symptoms are isolated and tested. Once positive cases are identified, much like the process goes in the public setting, contact tracing is completed to identify potential contacts.
Other facilities in the state are dealing with COVID clusters, too. However, visitation at Cayuga had not been suspended as of late-Wednesday.
