As expected of a closed-in Prison Population with limited "social distancing", the Numbers are creeping up, both in the number positive cases and in the number of cases ‘resolved’ or recovered from the virus.
This BLOG is specific to California prison and the acronym for the specific prison (as well as location) can be viewed at CDCR link here.
Keep in mind that the numbers changes daily but as of the past week [before Memorial Weekend] -->The breakdown is as follows:
The Total positive cases in the inmate population today stands at 714, up some 40 from yesterday. By individual prison: CIM 460 (8+); CIW 116 (6+); CVSP 52 (12+); ASP 49 (17+); LAC 32 (no change); CMC 4 (3-) and CEN 1 (1-). No, the numbers don’t exactly match, but there are also changes in the number of cases ‘resolved’ cases. The most concerning number, that of deaths related to CoVid 19, remains at 6, all from CIM (Chino)
CDCR has released no additional information today—again, leading into a long weekend, not unexpected or surprising. We will of course keep checking throughout the weekend and posting daily.
Please continue to send Vanessa, from Life Support Alliance
information on mask wearing and other details inside, LSA follows up on each and just the fact that LSA keeps bombarding CDCR with questions and particulars keeps them on their toes—someone is watching. And thanks to those who let LSA know their posts are helpful to them and their loved ones, in letting them know what’s going on. That’s LSA's objective, to provide information.
LSA continues the battle with CDCR, to get everyone to wear masks—and that means prisoners as well as staff members.
A REMINDER to family member, unless your loved one has added you to his/her Medical release form, CDCR Form 7385, CDCR cannot, by law, give you ANY information about their medical condition.
If you aren’t sure whether you’re on that Health disclosure form, send this form (see link below) in to those you care about, have them sign it and send to their counselor to put in their file. In fact, send in 2 forms, send one to the counselor and send one back to you.
Here’s a link to the form:
Everyone stay safe, enjoy the weekend as much as you can.
A BIG THANK YOU TO VANESSA AT Life Support Alliance FOR ALL HER
HARD WORK IN KEEPING EVERYONE INFORMED DURING THESE HARD TIMES.
