Officials are investigating an outbreak at a Maine jail that has sickened at least 85 people. York County Manager Gregory Zinser said the county will work with the Sheriff’s Office on a “comprehensive inquiry” into the outbreak that first appeared at the jail in Alfred on Aug. 19. More than half of the people sickened have been inmates. Zinser says York County will take action once it has gathered all the facts.
