Officers, sick inmates at state prisons will get face masks

New York is going to begin providing masks for corrections officers and sick inmates across the state’s prisons, according to officials.

Representatives of prison workers have been advocating for this protection since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Inmates who are in quarantine will also be given masks by the state.

Dozens inside the state’s prison network have tested positive for COVID-19.
