COVID-19 State Preparedness Handbook
The United States of Care
The United States of Care's handbook on COVID-19 preparedness lists five actions states should be taking to reopen safely. For protecting and fortifying sites at a high risk of transmission the handbook recommends that states need to build a strong, coordinated criminal justice system response plan in partnership with jails and prisons, including designating a person in charge of coordinating and implementing the state’s COVID response. The recommendation (page 7) provides a link to COCHS' proposal for state and federal Correctional Health Coordinators.
