Letter from Prison

September 4, 2020

Today, we posted our monthly letter from Marqui Clardy who is incarcerated in a Virginia prison. I urge you to read his letter which is entitled "Herd Immunity." In my previous blog, I incorporated data recently gathered by the Marshall Report that described that over 100,000 incarcerated people had been infected with the coronavirus. In Mr. Clardy's letter you will see how slow and lax measures helped spread the virus through much of the prison that he resides in. It seems that "herd immunity" has been the de facto way of containing the virus in at least one prison.
