HIV, Hep-C Tests for Jail

August 30, 2012

The Barnes County Corrections Center in Valley City is in the beginning stages of procuring the means for rapid HIV and Hepatitis C testing of inmates brought to the facility.

“It’s a decision made by the state, not by us,” said Valley City-Barnes County Health District Director Theresa Will on Wednesday.

Will said that the jail currently takes swabs to test for HIV but does not get results for about five or six days, and that those tests are being phased out. So far jail staff has not been trained in using the rapid tests.

Heitkamp met with the Valley City Times-Record editorial board Wednesday morning.

“I pretty much tell people this is a tied race at this point – Our (D-NPL) internal polls show us slightly ahead, but it’s within the margin of error,” Heitkamp said.
