MADISON (WKOW) -- Two more Dane County deputies have tested positive for COVID-19.

The men, aged 27 and 46, are home in quarantine, a press release from the Dane County Sheriff's Office said.

Earlier this week, two other deputies tested positive for the disease.

All four deputies, along with a pair of inmates, got the disease after living and working near the jail in the City-County Building.

Four deputies have tested positive, five negative and two remain pending.

Jail staff quarantined more inmates last week for having COVID-19 symptoms or coming into contact with infected people. The sheriff's office will not test any more inmates.

The sheriff's office released one of the inmates confirmed to have the disease. Staff quarantined the other. He does not have symptoms.
