Department of Corrections officials report only one COVID-19 positive case among inmates in two weeks at the California Institution for Women in Chino. 

After an outbreak among inmates testing positive for COVID-19 in mid-May, the California Institution for Women in Chino has only one positive case in the past two weeks, according to the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation statistics as of Friday morning. 

The prison at 16756 Chino Corona Road, south of the Preserve area of Chino, has had a total of 164 inmates testing positive for the virus and 158 have recovered. One inmate died from complications of coronavirus in early June, state prison officials said. 

Sixteen of 19 California Institution for Women employees have recovered and returned to work after testing positive for COVID-19. 

At nearby California Institution for Men, 902 inmates tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began in March. Of those, 500 inmates are still quarantined at the prison and 334 have recovered, numbers show. 

Sixteen inmates at the prison at 14901 Central Ave. have died after contracting coronavirus, officials reported.
