Ghislaine Maxwell has tested positive for COVID-19 in New Hampshire jail.

The Brown Valley Observer, a website that runs satirical and non-factual content, published an article with this claim. The claim was made in satire.

Jeffrey Epstein's ex-girlfriend and British socialite, Ghislaine Maxwell, was arrested by the FBI in New Hampshire on July 2, 2020. She has been accused of helping Epstein in recruiting and grooming underage girls.

On July 3, 2020, the Brown Valley Observer website published an article saying that Ghislaine Maxwell tested positive for COVID-19 in the New Hampshire jail. However, the claim is not true. Brown Valley Observer is a satirical website that produces humorous and non-factual content. The 'About Us' section of the website states that they are an 'entertainment website written to satirize news events, politics, and popular faces and ideas, and to provide commentary on social attitudes and trends.'

The latest media reports about Maxwell's impending court appearance carry no mention of her having tested positive for COVID-19.
