Peg, this facility is not furnishing inmates with enough disinfectant by refusing to provide spray bottles with sprayers on them. Also, staff refuse to wear face masks even with proof they are the ones infecting us. See WCI and CCI. If we get it, its because they are not providing us proper care. Deliberately indifferent to this global pandemic. Media attention necessary. Take care.

Got you email. Thank you for that. RGCI is in modified lockdown. 5,rooms come out to get their meal in the servery at a time and return to rooms to eat. Dayroom time is modified to 3 groups who take turns going to dayroom. 2 men per table. It is not here YET. I wish they would lock it all down, no one in or out of here. The guards sleep here too. It would have to be the ones without wives and kids. That is only sure way to keep safe. They have guys wiping down surfaces but not enough and not the right solution. This states it takes ten minutes to be effective. They spray and wipe right away. I am out of flags and have multiple people to answer letters to. As alway, love to you. Be safe. Covid-19 kills double the men than women. Randy

CHRISTOPHER KEARNS (656571, 1965, 54) KMCI Update 04/06/2020 I'll bet these
The warden has just implemented (beginning 4/7) a new set of guidelines in order "to continue the efforts in preventing COVID-19." We are hereby resigned to spending the vast majority of our time confined to our cells on the individual units. We have been offered the opportunity to "self-isolate" -- with another person. Obviously, Merriam-Webster's definition of self -- "oneself" -- escapes those who make the policies.
Time and numbers allotted for dayroom, TV area, microwave, and outside rec yard have been severely limited (according to a nearly indecipherable chart). Subseqently, telephone calls, email, and showers have been as well. How can ten people take a ten minute shower each in 60 minutes?
Today we are threatened with a conduct report for skipping seats at meals and tomorrow we'll be sitting on our bunks with a tray on our lap trying to eat soup. Talk about taking social distancing to the extreme. Yesterday there was no need, tomorrow we're locked down.
Oddly enough, recreation periods in the gym continue on. They are now reduced to twenty people from a single unit (from 50 from 4, and then 20 from 2) and inmates are required to wash their hands first. I suspect that the weight machines will be cleaned and sanitizd between each user (read "sarcasm," nothing here is properly sanitized). The library, also limited, is still open for business and although the school has been shut down for weeks, the teachers are still routinely wandering in btween units delivering homework to students they aren't teaching. (Perhaps it would be prudent to contain potential carriers of the virus to outside the fences.)
I think that all DOC decisions involve a blindfold, a dartboard, and a bottle of tequila . . .
Needless to say, the next few weeks are going to test everyone's mettle. Let's hope these new rules actually achieve their intended goals. Keep your fingers crossed.
Stay safe. I'll manage fine.
I think we must be realistic; the president thought this pandemic was a democratic hoax and he initially approached it as if it were a common flu. With such leadership it isn't surprising many Americans see the situation we're in as an inconvenience that will end soon. I hope it does, not only for the sake of the many who will die otherwise, but especially for the first responders on the front lines of this war dying and risking their lives to save ours. Surely their sacrifices should be honored by placing their names and photos beside others at Washington's War Memorial was this nightmare ends.
As an inmate, my current conditions reminds me that I am powerless to make any changes that might shield me or any other inmate from a deadly virus. We must rely on the wisdom of the Secretary or Governor, who I honestly believe want to do what is right but are prevented by law from exercising their wishes--at least when it comes to following the lead of other States and releasing inmates. Ironically, the threat Covid-19-presents may trigger the emergency that will allow them legally to release people under SAR, thereby bypassing a legislature unwilling to give up power. What do you think?
