New COVID-19 response policy for jails

The purpose of this policy is to outline considerations with respect to jail operations during this ongoing state of emergency.

As with other emergencies and natural disasters consideration has to be given to how jails will function during the emergency. In order to maintain a high level of staff and inmates it is essential that jail administrators consider how operations will impact close contact spread of Covid-19 and what steps can be considered to aid in controlling the virus, while maintaining the safety and security of the jail.
