To prevent or mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 in any of the Maricopa County Sheriff Office (MCSO) jails, proactively, Maricopa County Correctional Health Services (CHS) is following the precautions recommended by the Maricopa County Department of Public Health. These precautions include but are not limited to:
All Correctional Health Services staff are self-monitoring daily for fever and symptoms and are being sent home if any develop.
All inmates/patients being booked into a Maricopa County jail undergo supplemental screening at the time of intake to determine the presence of fever, respiratory infection, recent travel, or contact with persons with lab-confirmed COVID-19.
In the event an inmate/patient has a positive supplemental screening, they will be rapidly triaged and transported to a medical facility, if necessary.
Symptomatic inmates/patients are being evaluated by a healthcare provider, placed in medical observation / isolation and are tested if their symptoms are consistent with COVID-19.
Inmates/patients who are exposed to someone with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 are being placed in quarantine and monitored for symptoms.
CHS Clinical Liaison is a non-emergency service for attorneys and the public to provide incoming messages containing inmate information related to the delivery of healthcare.
Messages are received Monday - Friday during regular business hours (excluding weekends and County-observed holidays) and are relayed to clinical staff at the inmate’s housing location for follow-up.
For after-hours emergency concerns, please notify MCSO-SIMS via phone at 602-876-0322. For patient health information, a patient-signed authorization must be submitted to CHS Health Information Management. For instructions and required forms, please visit the Request Health Recordspage.
