Four prison officers in Northern Ireland have tested positive for Covid-19.
The staff members are based at the Hydebank Wood facility for women and young offenders in south Belfast.
The Northern Ireland Prison Service said a further 14 staff who tested negative are self-isolating and two prisoners have been put into isolation as a precaution.
“The Prison Service has well-established and embedded arrangements for testing staff, and to track and trace close contacts following a positive case,” said a spokesman.
“Following the contact tracing at HBW a further 14 staff, who have all tested negative, are self-isolating and two prisoners have also been put into isolation as a precaution.”
