Testing in the wake of the MuskogeeNOW story earlier this week at Eddie Warrior Correctional Facility in Taft has resulted in more than 400 new positive cases of COVID-19 in a single day, according to Muskogee Mayor Marlon Coleman.

“Members of the Muskogee City-County Task Force were briefed today regarding the COVID-19 outbreak at the Eddie Warrior Correctional Facility, resulting in Muskogee County showing a record high number of more than 400 new coronavirus cases reported in a single day,” Coleman said. “More cases are expected as testing continues.”

The prison’s open dorm-style housing does not allow for proper quarantining, and relying upon guards to decide who got tested did not adequately allow for preventing the spread of the disease either.

“This event, along with the reopening of schools, means we must be more vigilant in the battle against the spread of COVID-19, including consideration of stronger safety measures to be incorporated into the city existing mitigation plan in the coming days,” Coleman said. “We must protect families, small businesses and the local economy by staying at home if you are ill; wear masks when in public; and, when around people outside of your household, practice social distancing, and follow all other CDC recommendations in the ongoing battle to defeat COVID-19.”
