ABSTRACT

Recommendations for COVID-19 Protocols in Alabama Jails   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "As you know, the coronavirus, which causes the respiratory infection COVID 19 [coronavirus disease 2019], is confirmed in Alabama. It is only a matter of time before the disease becomes community wide. The virus is novel, so the human population has not developed immunities to it like the flu. It appears to be more contagious than the flu and 10 times more deadly, especially in older population or to people with chronic conditions. This virus will affect every aspect of law enforcement, but it will especially impact the jails. Before the numbers of those infected become potentially overwhelming, it is prudent for Alabama Sheriffs to develop a protocol for the administration of the jails in this crisis."
