December 2020- COVID Continues

Corcoran State Prison continues to violate the rights of the incarcerated population and denies them access to phone calls, yard, and dayroom for weeks on end despite weekly testing and safety protocol. Those who are incarcerated are locked in a 6 foot by 9 foot cement cell for 24 hours a day with no way to stretch their legs, access to fresh air or sunlight. Visits have not been prohibited since March 2020 due to the deadly pandemic, phone calls are essential for families in this situation. Corcoran State Prison is arbitrarily locking down the incarcerated population 24 hours a day for weeks with only a day or so in between so that they never go over the 14 day maximum rule but this has been happening since June 2020. At this time COVID19 has taken 121 lives in California Facilities and there are currently 7,796 incarcerated individuals in California Facilities who are COVID positive at this moment. There are currently 120 officers and 157 incarcerated individuals who have active positive cases of COVID at Corcoran State Prison. This is not acceptable. #BringThemHome
