COVID-19 related death of an inmate
CSC has dedicated health services in our institutions including nurses, physicians and other health professionals, as well as the equipment needed to monitor and treat inmates and the necessary personal protective equipment.
CSC works closely with public health to trace, test and treat inmates, as needed, including use of local hospitals to provide any further care needed.
CSC protocol involves medically isolating inmates who show symptoms or test positive for COVID-19 to prevent the spread of infection. We have modified routines, and put in place measures such as physical distancing, enhanced hygiene practices, cleaning and disinfecting protocols. All CSC workers and inmates are also provided with masks to prevent spread.
