People in prisons and jails are highly vulnerable to outbreaks of diseases like Covid. They are packed together in close quarters with little control over their daily interactions with others, and are often in poor health.

TAKE ACTION: Tell Gov. Cuomo we need urgent action to protect people who are incarcerated from Covid.
