Ghislaine Maxwell has been placed under quarantine at a New York City federal jail after possibly being exposed to a worker at the jail who tested positive for COVID-19. Maxwell, the British socialite accused of aiding and abetting Jeffrey Epstein in sexually abusing underage girls, tested negative for the coronavirus with a rapid test last Wednesday, CNBC reports. She will be tested again after her 14-day quarantine ends. A newly unsealed deposition reveals that Maxwell, 58, allegedly "constantly" took photos of topless girls at Epstein's Palm Beach home, which she kept in an album, Vanity Fair reports.
