Single-person cell at Victoria County Jail

Victoria County jail officials will house separate incoming inmates who show COVID-19 symptoms for up to 14 days in single-person cells before releasing them into general population.

The Texas Rangers are investigating a woman who was found dead in the Victoria County Jail on Wednesday morning.

A preliminary investigation found the woman did not have COVID-19 symptoms, said Sgt. Ruben San Miguel, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The woman’s age, name and city of residence along with other details were unavailable Wednesday.
