Marquette, MI – (05/28/20) – The Marquette County Jail recently had it’s first inmate test positive for COVID-19. Marquette County Sheriff Greg Zyburt joined Mark & Walt in the Morning today to talk about the case and how it was managed by County Jail staff.
Zyburt said that the person was from out of the area, and was lodged early Friday by State Police. Upon lodging, the individual was screened and did not show symptoms, but told authorities they may have had contact with someone who had the virus in Wisconsin.
