Confirmed COVID-19 Cases within SCDJJ

SCDJJ is posting a cumulative tally of confirmed COVID-19 cases among youth and staff at our secure facilities, county offices, administrative offices and alternative placement sites since the initial outbreak in March 2020.

Please note: Although we have a detailed screening process in place for staff and youth, staff are tested by their medical providers and those test results are self-reported. Also, for the multi-agency residential providers, we are only counting DJJ youth, not other residents who are not involved with our agency. Additionally, not all staff who tested positive were in contact with youth or other staff, but were confirmed positive while telecommuting.
