PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) - The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office says three inmates at the Pueblo County jail have tested positive for scabies from skin mites that cause itching and a rash.

According to the Pueblo Chieftain (https://tinyurl.com/o7wsxkb ), the three inmates confirmed to have scabies and about 20 others who have either come into contact with those inmates or have possible symptoms have been placed into the same area of the jail together.

The area in the jail they came from is being sanitized and cleaned.
