Staff and residents at Long Creek Youth Development Center will undergo universal COVID-19 testing after a minor tested positive last week.

The announcement was made by the Department of Corrections after consulting the Maine CDC.

The client in question was asymptomatic but received a test on Friday before their scheduled release.

As a precaution, Long Creek will increase use of personal protective equipment and medical monitoring of all on campus.

Currently no other staff or clients are showing any symptoms.
