Ghislaine Maxwell Positioned in Quarantine After Doable Publicity to Coronavirus
Ghislaine Maxwell has been moved to jail quarantine following a potential exposure to the coronavirus.
E! News can confirm that the 58-year-old former socialite, who is charged with procuring underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein, has been placed in quarantine in a Brooklyn federal detention facility after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19. Maxwell has tested negative thus far, according to prosecutors.
Prosecutors informed the judge of Maxwell’s status as she prepares for trial. Maxwell was most recently tested on Wednesday, Nov. 18, and will remain in quarantine through Dec. 18.
The prosecution team told the judge in the filing that “during her time in quarantine, the defendant will be housed in the same cell where she was already housed before she was placed in quarantine, and medical staff and psychology staff will continue to check on the defendant every day.”
