There was an article about the death of Anthony Cheek from Lee SP in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution newpaper today. A lot of points made about advocacy efforts to help thin out the prison population to reduce the level of infection but based on the paragraph below from the article that doesn't seem likely to happen any time soon:

"Gov. Brian Kemp has declined to support for any such releases. The Georgia Board of Pardons and Parole has said it is still making release decisions based on public safety and not changing because of coronavirus."

Unfortunately, as a society we're much more action-oriented when after the crisis (in this case community spread and deaths) occurs rather than take the preventative steps to avoid or mitigate the impact in the first place.
