It's been operating at double capacity for decades. When we say social distancing is impossible in these facilities, that's not a claim out of nowhere - there are 8 prisoners sleeping in a 4-man cube.

Duncan is co-author of the report First 90 Days of Prisoner Resistance to COVID-19: Report on Events, Data, and Trends from Perilous.
