April 7, 2020 Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos reported to the Board of Supervisors that he has released to the public 258 inmates. He told Supervisor Dave Pine “They have been straight releases.” which means no electronic monitoring which also means he has no idea where they are.
At the 1:15:52 mark in the video Sheriff Bolanos said “To date fortunately we have had No Inmates, Deputies or Correctional Officers test positive for COVID-19. In order to test positive for COVID-19 one would have to take the test.
I’ve asked San Mateo County Manager Mike Callagy to verify with the Sheriff that he did test all of the 258 inmates before releasing them to the public. His response was that I should ask the Sheriff directly, that he is an elected official. You would think the County Manager would be interested in this subject.
I would like to hear what Dr. Scott Morrow thinks of this. That should have been what Sheriff Bolanos reported before being released all 258 Inmates were tested for COVID-19 and all tests came back negative, he did not say that.
