Several Tuolumne County Inmates Tested For H1N1

Sonora, CA — Several Tuolumne County Jail inmates had court hearings conducted over a video stream this week because of fears that they may have H1N1, or Swine Flu.

Jail staff briefly ordered Monday that all inmates displaying the flu like symptoms be kept in the same area, but that order has since been lifted.

“At this point, there’s absolutely no confirmation that they have H1N1,” adds Sgt. A.J. Ford. “Tuolumne County Jail staff expects to have those results within approximately 72 hours.”

The inmates were living in the same area of the jail.
