In this part, John shows exactly how inmates live in the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry. John takes you through the various housing types where inmates reside.
The men and women incarcerated within the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry reside in several different housing types.
These housing units range from 1 or 2 person cells, 10-person tents, 20 person Quonset huts, “runs” or “dorms” of various populations and size, and warehouses that contain up to 20 people in one open area.
The proximity to other people is very narrow and is the perfect conditions for an outbreak of COVID-19. Social distancing is not an option and appropriate cleaning supplies are limited.
The housing of the incarcerated is a key element in understanding the threat of COVID-19 on the prison population, staff, contractors, and the communities where the prisons reside.
