To coincide with the plan, REFORM has launched an online petition to further encourage public officials sufficiently protect people behind bars. “Failing to act could expose tens of thousands of people in prisons and jails across the country to the virus,” reads the petition. “Given the crowded nature of our correctional institutions, an outbreak is likely and would not only endanger people in prisons but also correctional staff and outside communities.” REFORM has also set up a page for people to contact the governor of their state to address the issue.
