Hundreds Of Cook County Jail Guards Call In Sick On Super Bowl Sunday

CHICAGO (CBS) — Despite efforts to get ahead of the issue, a large number of guards at the Cook County jail again called in sick on Super Bowl Sunday.

Cook County Sheriff’s Chief Policy Officer Cara Smith said 109 guards called in sick for the morning shift, and another 130 called in sick for the second shift.

That’s four more sick calls than 2016, and accounts for about 19 percent of the staff assigned for the day.
