This story was told by a person incarcerated at Todd Road Jail.
Caller: Well, I mean, we’re overpacked. There’s no six-feet distancing. No social distancing. They don’t provide us with masks. So, yeah that’s pretty much – it’s the same thing here different day.
UCI: Okay, you said they don’t provide you with masks, so they – they’re not asking you guys to wear them at all?
Caller: No, they gave us one mask upon arrival, which is a disposable mask. It’s only supposed to be used once and then after that – and they – they are really not reliable. They rip. The strings fall off of it.
It’s the ones you can buy at like a $0.99 Cents store, and they expect us to – to keep those, and usually, they don’t hand them out. They’re very – they’re short on them. Sometimes they consider them contraband for the strings. So, they try not to hand them out as much as possible.
