The Council on Criminal Justice issued a special report on COVID. The report outlines general recommendations to be carried out by all leaders across the criminal justice system, as well as sector-specific recommendations.
A summary of the general recommendations is below:
Go beyond CDC guidance to stop exponential growth
Communicate transparently about COVID-19 response plans, policies, and data
Adopt universal masking requirements for all staff and impacted populations when indoors and in close contact with others
Widely and frequently test staff and justice-involved populations for COVID-19 using the most reliable methods available
Limit contact, maximize distance, and reduce density
Allocate resources strategically
Actively engage and consider impacted communities in all decision-making
