San Mateo County Health officials today canceled a quarantine at the county jail after at least three inmates with mumps-like symptoms were found to be suffering from the flu.
Court appearances, trials and inmate visits were back to normal today after the flu virus was confirmed by the California Department of Public Health, Chief Deputy District Attorney Karen Guidotti said.
On Tuesday, a sick inmate saw a doctor who said his symptoms were consistent with the mumps, a highly contagious virus.
Some third-floor inmates at the Maguire Correctional Facility were quarantined while a specimen from the inmate was being tested, sheriff's Lt. Larry Schumaker said.
As many as seven court proceedings had to be rescheduled.
