TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Topeka Correctional Facility is being called the largest current COVID-19 hotspot in the state.

At least 89 COVID-19 cases have been reported at the Facility since January 8. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment says no other school, daycare, long-term care facility, business, sport or religious gathering had as many COVID-19 cases in the past two weeks.

The next largest outbreaks in the state were reported at two long-term care facilities that each reported 25 cases.
