While Harvey Weinstein serves his time in jail, he is being closely monitored to ensure no physical or self-inflicted harm is done to him.

In addition to cameras being placed around his surroundings, a correctional officer follows the producer whenever he leaves his cell, TMZ reports.

The officer following Weinstein also has a camera recording at all times, meaning there is little downtime where the Hollywood convict is not being monitored.

The increased security is to avoid another "Epstein Incident." Jeffrey Epstein, the wealthy financier and sex offender, previously died by suicide while supposedly under heavy prison watch.

High-ranking officials at NYC's Department of Corrections increased Weinstein’s surveillance over the fear that he would also attempt to take his own life, TMZ reported.

Most notably, Weinstein was also being closely monitored for exhibiting COVID-19-related symptoms in prison.

Weinstein’s publicist Juda Englemeyer, and Craig Rothfeld, his authorized rep from the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision and Department of Health, said in a statement to CNN that the ex-producer has a fever but would “neither confirm nor deny that Mr. Weinstein has tested positive for COVID-19.”

"We can confirm that Mr. Weinstein has a fever and is being closely monitored by the excellent medical staff at Wende CF for which the entire legal defense team is grateful," Englemeyer added.

Weinstein reportedly had a 101-degree fever.

However, Weinstein’s COVID test came back negative.

Engelmayer and Rothfeld, told Page Six, that Weinstein’s fever had “dropped.”

While Weinstein’s test is negative, he is being closely monitored for other “underlying health issues.” Engelmayer added that Weinstein’s health is still getting worse and that he needs medical treatment.

“We can report that Mr. Weinstein’s fever has dropped but is still being closely monitored. We can also report at this time that he does not have COVID-19,” the spokesperson said. “Mr. Weinstein continues to be very closely monitored due to the plethora of underlying health issues which are continuing to decline, get worse, and need treatment."

The former Hollywood mogul was convicted of sexual assault and rape earlier this year and is serving a 23-year sentence at Wende Correctional Facility in upstate New York, The New York Times reported.
