A COVID-19 outbreak at the Calgary Remand Centre has ballooned this week to 234 active cases — including inmates and staff — but facility and health representatives say they are handling the situation  according to protocol. That includes quarantining new inmates and isolating those who test positive. As of Friday, 198 inmates, 35 correctional staff members — not including Alberta Health Services staff — and one contractor have tested positive at the remand centre. 

This is up from the 41 cases reported at the end of November.
