(CNN)After a recent outbreak of Covid-19 infections at the largest correctional facility in San Diego County, a class-action lawsuit was filed Wednesday by the American Civil Liberties Union and a community advocacy group against San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore, demanding he protect local incarcerated people from further infections.

The lawsuit filed in San Diego County Superior Court came a day after the San Diego County Sheriff's Department announced an outbreak of Covid-19 cases had occurred at one of its detention facilities.

The sheriff's department said 106 inmates were tested for the coronavirus on March 6 after potential contact with an infected inmate at the George Bailey Detention Facility in Otay Mesa, in the southern section of San Diego.

The inmate at the center of the outbreak was booked in mid-February at the San Diego Central Jail, according to the sheriff's department, and was placed in quarantine for seven days with a temperature check twice a day, following jail protocol.

"The San Diego Sheriff's Department has been on notice of this reality since early 2020, yet the number of jail staff and inmates hit with Covid-19 continues to rise," McBride said in a statement.

The George Bailey Detention Facility currently has 1,305 inmates, according to a San Diego County Sheriff's Department Covid-19 jail status report.
