Inmates at Dutchess County correctional facilities accounted for more than 30% of the 211 coronavirus cases among incarcerated individuals across the state.
Roughly two-thirds of the positive cases are in the Hudson Valley. Overall, five inmates have died in prisons across New York.
And Fishkill Correctional Facility in Beacon has more confirmed cases than any other prison.
That’s according to totals as of Sunday night, released Monday by the state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision.
Of the 211 positive cases for inmates in New York, 46 are at Fishkill; 10 of the inmates have recovered.
Overall, New York's prison system had about 47,000 inmates at the end of 2019.
Sing Sing Correctional in Ossining has 44 positive cases.
However, it accounted for three of the five coronavirus-related deaths in New York. Fourteen patients have recovered at Sing Sing.
Wende Correctional in Alden, with 23 cases, 11 recovered, is the only facility in the top-five highest across the state to be located outside of the Hudson Valley.
Bedford Hills Correctional has 21 cases, four recovered, while Green Haven Correctional in Stormville has 18 confirmed cases with one recovered.
Overall, the state has administered 350 tests, according to the statistics, with 83 coming back negative and 56 pending.
The totals come after the state Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, lobbied for officers to be able to wear personal protective gear at all times while on duty, a request the state granted in the opening days of this month.
At that time Fishkill Correctional had 24 confirmed cases among correctional officers, with 74 quarantined, and Green Haven had 18 positive cases with 88 quarantined, according to reports from union stewards given to Mike Mazzella, Mid-Hudson Region vice president for NYSCOPBA.
Prison-rights advocates, including the Release Aging People in Prison Campaign, said the data showed that just 1% of inmates at New York's 52 prisons have been tested, while 794 prison staff has tested positive for the virus.
"This information provides further proof that Governor Cuomo does not care about the lives of incarcerated people," the groups said in a statement.
"If he did, then he would test every single person in prison and answer the nation’s call for him to grant broad clemencies to incarcerated New Yorkers, especially those who are vulnerable to the virus."
In March, the Cuomo administration ordered the release of up to 1,100 people who were held on technical parole violations.
Last week, Cuomo's office said it would begin freeing those who are aging and nearing their release date.
