I’m sharing my story regarding my son, who’s incarcerated in in Oklahoma. There are more and more inmates and [sic] as well as staff coming in with the COVID-19. It’s the people who come in that are infecting inmates.
There have been complaints from the women’s prison that they’re not able to take a shower as frequently as they should. Also concern that the COVID-19 positive rates are high in the state of Oklahoma. Since they are high, the medical conditions of my son…and his immune system, they may be compromised. At this time my son has not been affected. I’m asking you to investigate procedures in the state of Oklahoma and the Oklahoma department of corrections.
