RIVERSIDE (CNS) - Two more sheriff's deputies in Riverside County have tested positive for COVID-19, as well as an inmate -- the county's first incarcerated case -- according to Sheriff Chad Bianco. The announcement brings the total number of deputies known to be infected with the virus to three. On Thursday, officials said a deputy who worked at a jail tested positive. "I have spoken to all of them and they are in good spirits recovering,'' Bianco said of the deputies in a Facebook video. Bianco said there are other deputies who are self-quarantined and are awaiting test results, though he did not specify how many. The inmate who tested positive for COVID-19 became symptomatic several days ago, was immediately isolated and is being treated by medical staff, according to Bianco
