Update

The virus is on level 2 side and some of the guards still have it. They are using state troopers as backup guards. Everything is still not open, no religious services or classes have been scheduled. We are still going to chow hall and eating in groups in our dorm. We are now required to wear a mask, but some inmates do not listen to this. Some of them do not even wash their hands after using the bathroom. We have people coughing and sneezing at night in everyone’s cube…same when we are in the yard. So, for social distancing, that’s a joke here. No one has even done that…we still go in groups to the chow hall. We still have 6-7 guys to a cube.
