Hi JHarr, the only thing I can find concerns the release of jail inmates. There were several articles with the same info, here is one:

New Jersey will release low-level offenders from jail to prevent coronavirus spread

(CNN)The chief justice for New Jersey has orderedthe release of hundreds of inmates in county jails by Tuesday "based on the dangers posed by Coronavirus disease 19."

"The reduction of county jail populations, under appropriate conditions, is in the public interest to mitigate risks imposed by Covid-19," New Jersey Chief Justice Stuart Rabner of the New Jersey Supreme Court wrote.

The inmates who may be released are those detained for probation violations, municipal court convictions, disorderly persons offenses and for fourth-degree or petty crimes, the order says.

Default Coronavirus in NJ Prisons

Does anybody know if there is any talk about what they are going to do about the coronavirus in the NJ Prisons because it is there...Each Prisoner is in harms way of getting this virus...Did anybody hear anything on releasing the non-violent from Prison...Not Jails...You can't have a social distance in prison when they sleep two feet from each other and eat out of the same things...Along with the phones that aren't sanitized after each use...I'm scared for my loved one in there...

From NJDOC's webpage:

Quote:
COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions – as of 3/31/2020

Is my loved one eligible for early release?
New Jersey Department of Corrections does not have the authority to release individuals early.
https://www.state.nj.us/corrections/...9Updates.shtml

I did an internet search for articles, but found none relating to the release of prison inmates, just the same articles about release of inmates from the jails

EDIT: The link ^^ above ^^ also has information on what NJDOC is doing to "protect" inmates and staff from Covid-19.
