Stop the spread!

The new COVID-19 variant has shown up in Michigan prisons. Our client Mr. D shares his idea to help stop the spread: "The new and more contagious UK variant of covid has been detected at Bellamy Creek Prison. In response they have began daily testing for prisoners and staff. Here at thumb we have zero positives and my concern is that the MDOC will continue to be reactive and not proactive. Please voice this concern to director Heidi Washington and the LT. Governor. Mandatory daily testing should begin immediately for ALL STAFF especially at facilities where the outbreak is under control. This is a common sense approach that can save lives and money."
