COVID Concerns Remain

As COVID numbers across the state are elevated, it's reappearing in some prisons, also: "I am housed at the Muskegon Correctional Facility and recently there was an outbreak in Unit 2... But instead of locking down Unit 2 and feeding the residents in the unit in an effort to contain the virus, the facility has chosen to allow the inmates to go to the chow hall to eat. They send them last but have continuously called for them to come over when other units are still in the chow hall finishing their meals. Staff will joke and try to rush us by saying "You better hurry up if you don't want COVID; 2 Block is on it's way over." After a year and a half of dealing with COVID, it's almost laughable that there is still this kind of discord, inefficiency, and lack of planning and understanding as to how to deal with new cases and outbreaks. Their overall indifference is putting the lives of the rest of the population at risk."
