State prison officials released an online patient testing tracker Thursday mapping COVID-19 cases among California’s incarcerated population, with three inmates tested so far at San Diego County’s lone prison, but no positive results at present.

The online tracker indicates that 167 inmates across the state have been tested as of Wednesday, with only one positive test at the Los Angeles County prison in Lancaster.

Three inmates at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility have been tested, according to the tracker, but none have tested positive so far. A California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation statement said the data would be updated several times per day.

According to CDCR, 11 employees at six correctional facilities across the state have tested positive for COVID-19, none of whom are at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility.
