LAPORTE — After successfully dodging the coronavirus for the past nine and half months, LaPorte County Jail is experiencing a surge in coronavirus cases, with 43 inmates infected so far, an official said.

The infection rate amounted to 13 percent of the jail population as of Wednesday morning, and 95 other inmates, who have tested negative so far, are being quarantined after being exposed to a positive inmate, said Derek J. Allen, administrative captain and public information officer with the LaPorte County Sheriff's Department.

"No, there have not been any hospitalizations or deaths for any of our inmates as the result of COVID," he said in response to an inquiry from The Times.
