The quarantine began after a jail inmate who was transferred from the jail to San Quentin State Prison on July 28 reported having flu symptoms.

Another Solano County jail inmate also developed flu symptoms a short time later, including a fever. A test determined he was 95 percent "probable" for the H1N1 virus, Lt. Gary Faulkner said.

Faulkner said no new flu cases have been reported since then and that the 7-day quarantine has "run its course."
