The former film producer was transferred from Rikers Island to the new high-security prison last week. The former producer has undergone several medical examinations since his arrival, because he had to go to the hospital several times because of heart complaints and high blood pressure. Weinstein has not been notified of his infection. Another prisoner was also tested positive for the virus.
His spokesman, Judah Engelmayer, let on The Daily Beast know that they have not yet received any announcements about this. She also says she does not know if he stays in isolation.
Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison last month for sexual assault and rape. He reached the age of 68 behind bars on Friday.
