68-year-old Harvey Weinstein had tested positive for the coronavirus in a New York prison.
Weinstein was previously locked up at New York City’s Rikers Island jail complex, which has had a spate of coronavirus cases. He is serving a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault.
The state prison system confirmed that two inmates at Wende have been diagnosed with the disease.
Weinstein’s spokesman and defense lawyer said Monday they “will neither confirm nor deny whether Mr. Weinstein has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.”
