Two residents of a corrections facility in Billings have tested positive for COVID-19.
The cases were discovered July 4 and 6 at Alpha House pre-release center, where offenders typically spend six months before reentering society.
David Armstrong is CEO of Alternatives Inc., which operates Alpha House for the Montana Department of Corrections.
“Both of these came out of residents who had symptomatology and were sent for testing. And the test results came back positive," Armstrong said.
Armstrong says both individuals with COVID-19 are isolated.
