OIG Fact Sheet

In April 2020, the Speaker of the Assembly requested the Office of the
Inspector General (the OIG) assess the policies, guidance, and directives
the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (the
department) had implemented since February 1, 2020, in response to the
novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Specifically, the Speaker requested
focus on three concerns: 1) the department’s screening process for all
individuals entering a prison or facility in which incarcerated persons are
housed or are present, 2) its distribution of personal protective equipment
to departmental staff and incarcerated persons, and 3) how it treats
incarcerated persons who are suspected to have either contracted or been
exposed to COVID-19. This Fact Sheet presents highlights from the third
report in this series, which was published in February 2021
