What precautions is the MDOC implementing regarding inmates washing their hands with soap?

All prisoners have access to soap. We have increased soap in bathrooms as well as have directed MSI to increase production. Soap has been distributed to prisoners and the prisoners have been told that if they need more soap they only need to ask. Additional soap will be provided at no charge. CDC posters detailing proper hygiene practices have been posted in the prisoners housing units and have also been recreated digitally so they play on tv screens throughout our facilities. These are the same posters you will see in your community and throughout State of Michigan office buildings.
