Panel Calls For Better Distancing In Conn. Prisons

A court-created panel is suggesting improved social distancing in Connecticut prisons. CT News Junkie reports that the committee wants Correction Department officials to move bunks farther apart in dormitories. The panel said social distancing guidelines seemed to be "sparsely implemented" in some facilities, even though more space was available in some dorm areas. Prison dorms have been a source of concern for possible transmission of coronavirus. The panel was created as part of a settlement of a lawsuit by the ACLU against the state.
