Testing continues at the Albany County Jail after 21 inmates test positive for COVID-19.

Sheriff Craig Apple says only four of the infected prisoners are showing symptoms, but all 21 of them are being monitored while under quarantine. There are currently 11 employees out of work right now since they've also contracted the illness. So far, roughly 100 of the over 300 inmates at the jail have already been screened for coronavirus.
