The following article outlines several strategies on how ICE should handle the covid crisis in ICE facilities, how the government has responded and lawsuits / court orders pertaining to ICE during the Covid pandemic.

Immigration Detention and Covid-19
Immigration enforcement strategies must change to help alleviate the worst damage of Covid-19.

Covid-19 poses a grave threat to those in immigration custody, including those being held along the southern border and at other immigration facilities around the country. The conditions at some of these facilities are deplorable, and it would be unconscionable to place additional people into these facilities absent an extraordinary reason. The federal government, in partnership with state and community actors, must create a comprehensive response to minimize the impacts of Covid-19 on those who are at risk of arrest by immigration authorities. The federal government should also dramatically reduce the number of people in immigration detention.
