COVID, Prisons, & Jails

“The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office has a duty to the public to be transparent in its operations, and this duty is especially critical in light of the Covid-19 pandemic. Because surveillance of Covid-19 cases is essential to preventing and mitigating outbreaks in the Clayton County jail, the public has a right to know about the practices of the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office and the effects of Covid-19 on the Clayton County Jail.”
