01 Jul COVID-19 in Prisons: State by State Testing Comparison
This chart shows the number of COVID-19 tests each state has performed in prisons, as of November 25. Testing people who are incarcerated is essential to preventing the spread of the virus in prisons and in communities at large.
Illinois does not publicly release the total number of tests it has administered in prisons. The number we provide here is the total number of positive tests. We have asked the State to provide the total number of tests administered so we know the percent positive rate.
