Dear CorrectionsOne Member,

This is the first edition of CorrectionsOne’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) Briefing. Twice a month, we will bring you accurate, relevant and actionable information to help you, your members and your families navigate the national emergency.

IMPORTANT: You’re receiving this first issue as a preview, but to continue to receive the briefing, quickly sign up here. It’s a free resource and we want to make sure you have access to up-to-the-minute info, including updates on new free online courses and policies from Lexipol.
Inside this issue, you will find:
  • Essential resources: When polled about their biggest COVID-19 concerns, readers overwhelmingly said the safety of their family. Our list of family support resources directs readers to public and private services to assist responders and their loved ones.
  • Expert insights: CDC and American Jail Association subject matter experts tackle key considerations for prisons and jails, including isolation vs. quarantine, staff PPE guidelines and COVID screening.
One more thing: Forward this newsletter to correctional officers and deputies on the front lines and the leaders making key COVID-19 decisions for their agencies.

Stay safe out there!


Nancy Perry, Editor-in-Chief, CorrectionsOne.com
