ACLU of Ohio Expresses Concern in Letter to Gov. DeWine Regarding the Prevention & Management of COVID-19 for Incarcerated Ohioans
By ACLU of Ohio
On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, ACLU of Ohio Executive Director Ben Guess and Legal Director Freda Levenson sent Ohio Governor Mike DeWine a letter urging an immediate plan of action regarding the state’s prevention and management of COVID-19 and its impact on incarcerated Ohioans.
The letter outlines the need to protect against the potential spread of COVID-19 among Ohio’s prisons, youth facilities, and jails, and for those plans to be made public so Ohioans can have confidence in the safety of their loved ones.
