At a standstill
This story was told by a person incarcerated at Chuckawalla.
UCI: And how – how do you think COVID-19 has been handled by your facility, I mean, since the beginning of the outbreak?
Caller: Well, that – that’s in numerous ways, you know, all the self-help programs have stopped because of social distancing and they’re not allowing volunteers into the prison.
All of the vocational programs have stopped. And any in-college classes that we had had going on that – that at least for this facility had – that had just started to ramp up, those are all – those have all been shut down.
So you really only have as far as, like, self-improvement wise is correspondence college courses going on. Everything else is at a standstill.
