On July 22nd, 2020 United States Penitentiary Pollock received an in-coming transfer bus of prisoners from facilities in the South Central Region. This region which happens to include federal prisons in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas has been plagued with an increase of Covid-19 cases. A prisoner who was received here at USP Pollock tested positive for Covid-19. Prior to the positive test the prisoner had been in a holding cell with at least 10(ten) other prisoners who have been quarantined on Unit B-3 here at USP Pollock. B-3 is the Unit which the Administration has assigned for the housing of Prisoners releasing to the Public and prisoners who are preparing to be transferred to other facilities. At this time it is unknown whether or not the infected prisoner has infected any other staff members or prisoner. Covid-19 has proven to be extremely contagious especially in the congregant settings of Prisons and Jails.
As of July 20th, 2020–3,861 Federal prisoners in B.O.P. and private prisons have been infected by the Corona Virus. Approximately 320 Staff have been diagnosed with the Corona Virus. 99 B.O.P. facilities and 6 private prisons as well as 46 Federal Half-Way houses have been infected with Corona Virus. These are record setting statistics that have been reported via the LISA Federal Prison Newsletter that I receive weekly. LISA reports that 101 Federal Prisoners have died of Covid-19. The most recent deaths have been at FMC Carswell and FCI Seagoville both located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth, Texas area.
The LISA News-Letter is Edited by Thomas L. Root M.A., J.D. it is very important that we give Mr. Root the credit for publishing this excellent news source for Federal Prisons so that we can collect timely and accurate information regarding the conditions inside these Federal Prisons. I request that this update is posted and shared far and wide via Social Media and any other Media Platforms.
