No calls or emails today. Must be locked down. I doubt they will be back on a normal schedule until Covid-19 isn’t a threat. But they are safer in their cells.

Hi Ladies, I hadn’t logged into PT since January so it took me a minute but I wanted to post that I did get an email and it was from last evening. My LO is an essential worker so occasionally I do get emails when they aren’t let out for the day - and this email had that feel as it was very short with a lot of misspelled words out of hurry. He said they’ve been placed on 14 day lockdown due to COVID. We were prepared for this as I am heavily involved in supporting the CA state prison system as it is where I live and it helps me learn what we can change in the Fed system. We’ve leaned so much about how NOT to handle COVID from San Quentin prison here. I agree with AlphaBelle, our guys are safest in their cells now that employees have tested positive. For once, its a blessing that the nature of this prison is isolated in a remote rural area with little COVID. I use the Johns Hopkins COVID map to track its spread and eastern Kentucky has done well so far. This facility being high security has better ability to seperate the men. I am watching every fed facility as they react to COVID and theyve learned faster than state prisons, and our men are used to LD so again they are more equipped to tolerate the isolation required to handle this. CA state prisons is actively trying to start widespread video visits so I am hoping Feds will follow this trend. They originally had slated that for all fed prisons but to my knowledge only got it up and running in women’s facilities. Maybe FBOPnomore can verify that? Our best way to support them is write LOTS of letters - not only for support, but to make it clear everyone is watching this situation. If they do have general spread of COVID they may keep them locked down longer than 2 weeks so we need to be prepared for that.

We need justice. It is not fare that the woman can have video visits and the men don't. Men should be able to call us through video while were at home during our quarantine since there is no visit nor will it be any visitations any time soon maybe even in the next 10 years. Everyone should be treated fairly and i will dm floyd brother for justice to imprisonment!!!!

Sorry, I do not have any information about video visits in the bop. I'm not optimistic though, since the bop never does anything they feel would enhance their prisoner's quality of life.

As of this morning, it is showing six positive staff cases of Covid-19. Zero inmate cases...which we all know is because no one is testing them. My LO said on Friday that they hadn’t heard a word about positive cases and he hadn’t seen or heard or any inmates being tested.

I received a letter today.. There on a 14 day lockdown to try and stop the spread. He didn't say when it started or when it will end. He's scared, like most are right now. Please everyone continue to pray for their safety, his letter was heartbreaking.
