These inmates are believed to be part of general population.

Recently there was an inmate that was injured during a fall and had to be treated at a Rockledge hospital. While in the hospital, that inmate who was also part of general population, tested positive for Covid-19.

It is believed by some that this could be the reason for the recent outbreak.
