What actions are being taken to protect MDOC officers and facility staff?

For staff working in the facilities, all will be asked a series of screening questions and will have their temperature checked before being allowed entrance into the prison. For those with a temperature above 100.4, they will not be allowed to work. Information on prevention has been provided to the prison population and MDOC staff. Facilities have undergone additional and more frequent cleaning of the prisons and the use of bleach has been authorized. The MDOC has provided masks to all prison employees and they are required to wear them at all times during their shift. They can also bring their own PPE if they prefer it over what the department provides.
