The state Department of Corrections does not report the deaths because of privacy laws.
The medical examiner says a 63-year-old man with preexisting health conditions died Sept. 12 from COVID-19. And on Sept. 15, a 62-year-old man who tested positive for COVID-19 while incarcerated at Dodge Correctional died of lung cancer.
The medical examiner says the coronavirus infection was a contributing factor to his death.
