More positive COVID-19 cases have been confirmed at the California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo.

As of Thursday morning, 87 inmate cases and 12 staff member cases were linked to the recent outbreak.

Testing at the facility is ongoing.

CMC officials say an outside vendor is being used for mandatory staff testing "to help reduce the burden on county resources."
