    The high rate of COVID-19 infections in some of our nation’s prisons and jails is a stark warning of what could happen if our nation continues to treat inmates and healthcare workers in those facilities as second class citizens, unworthy of personal protective equipment. The outbreaks among the incarcerated will contribute to the current overburdening of hospitals. But more ominously, as asymptomatic inmates are released they will infect their communities, as will correctional healthcare workers who travel daily from their facility to their home. If our nation wants to turn the corner on the global pandemic, we must move quickly to address this aspect of the crisis.

  6. Keeping it Clean

    Avoid infection with cleaning, disinfection, and hygiene One of the best ways to avoid infection with COVID-19 is keeping a safe distance – at least six feet – from an infected person. That may be difficult in most correctional or detention facilities. While the likelihood of contracting COVID-19 from hard surfaces or paper products is lower than airborne, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) promotes good hand hygiene and cleaning/disinfecting of living, recreation and work areas. This article highlights the key points related to hygiene, cleaning, and disinfection in the CDC’s Interim Guidance on Management of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Correctional and Detention Facilities. Wellpath medical staff follows these CDC guidelines to minimize the chance for infection. Additional details […]

  7. Flattening the Curve

    CDC guidelines protect staff, medical personnel, visitors & patients One of the best ways to protect against the COVID-19 is to avoid contact with the virus. Do not touch it. Do not breathe it. Maintain six feet of distance between people. Use the prescribed personal protective equipment (PPE). COVID-19 is an equal opportunity virus. It threatens everyone without regard for age, sex, or socio-economic status. It affects leaders of countries, doctors, nurses, and incarcerated individuals equally. It has no respect for the economy or business timelines. As Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, says, COVID-19 has its own timeline. The best advice for avoiding COVID-19 is to minimize contact to the virus by […]
