Dear Corrections1 Member,

It has been six months since we learned of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, China, and five months since the first travel-related case of COVID-19 was identified in the United States. Unprecedented is the word that has been used to describe the impact of the virus on our society, and that is especially true for correctional facilities, with jails and prisons still addressing high COVID-19 infection rates among inmates and correctional personnel.

When we polled readers in March about their biggest COVID-19 concerns, family safety and officer wellness topped the list. In this week’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Briefing we address those concerns by offering:
  • A checklist for reducing the risk of transmitting exposure after returning from a shift
  • 7 tips for staying sane during the pandemic
Bookmark Lexipol’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Learning and Policy Center for 24/7 access to free policies, courses and training tools for corrections. Stay safe!
