Regional Care Facilities

The Washington Department of Corrections (DOC) is taking deliberate steps to continue to mitigate the spread of infection to the incarcerated population, staff and general public.

Suitable locations, referred to as a Regional Care Facility (RCF), were previously identified by department leaders and key stakeholders, including local facility subject matter experts. These RCF’s would safely and comfortably house incarcerated individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and may require more comprehensive medical attention and physical isolation from healthy populations, but do not require hospitalization. Should an infected individual’s medical conditions or needs become severe, the department and agency medical personnel will work collaboratively with hospital partners to provide the necessary medical care.

(Current as of Tuesday, October 19, 2021. Numbers are updated Monday-Friday, except for holidays)

Incarcerated individuals from the Confirmed Cases chart are transported, when necessary, to one of the regional care facilities listed below.

Isolation & Quarantine

Current as of Tuesday, October 19, 2021. Numbers are updated Monday-Friday, except for holidays.

Isolation and Quarantine Among Incarcerated Population

Isolation: separating a symptomatic patient with a concern for a communicable disease from other patients.

Quarantine: separating from other individuals those who are not showing symptoms yet have been exposed to an individual with a contagious disease.

Federal quarantine and isolation currently apply to the following diseases: cholera; diphtheria; infectious tuberculosis; plague; smallpox; yellow fever; viral hemorrhagic fevers; influenza caused by new or re-emergent flu viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic; and severe acute respiratory syndromes (which may include COVID-19).

Testing Among Incarcerated Population

Because of the variety of ways testing occurs, consistently and accurately reporting testing numbers can be challenging. Given the more robust availability of testing in the community and within our state’s correctional facilities, the Department is working to determine the best way to share accurate numbers regarding the testing of incarcerated individuals and the previously displayed testing data has been removed.

Testing of the incarcerated population is conducted per the department’s COVID-19 Screening, Testing, and Infection Control Guideline (pdf). Incarcerated individuals are tested if they are identified during contact tracing, self-identify symptoms and/or if they are identified as being symptomatic. Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are then appropriately placed on quarantine status or in medical isolation, per the department’s COVID-19 Screening, Testing, and Infection Control Guideline (pdf), depending on whether they are symptomatic or asymptomatic and are kept separate from healthy individuals.
