A Hennepin County jail inmate tested positive for coronavirus Sunday, marking the first known case inside a Twin Cities detention center.

The man, who has not been identified by authorities, was booked into the jail on Friday and quickly isolated by staff after exhibiting symptoms. The inmate, who has not yet been charged with a crime, was released Sunday shortly after his results came back and has agreed to self-isolate at home, said Rob Allen, chief of staff for the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office. The nature of his alleged crime was not public due to privacy concerns, Allen said.
