Local prison under quarantine

Prison under quarantine

In Freeland, the Saginaw Correctional Facility is under quarantine because people are sick. A prison spokesman confirms the situation. But for additional information, we were refered to a prison spokesman who was unavailable.

MLive reports the number who are sick has climbed to 89 prisoners and seven staff members because of an E. coli outbreak. The quarantine was put into effect Aug. 31 and will remain in place until Saginaw County Health department officials determine there is no more potential for infection.
