BC Corrections has released four non-violent inmates from OCC to address concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. The California Health Care Facility, California's newest prison, was built as a central place to provide medical care to inmates from across the state.

The letter calls on the governments "to stop admitting people to jails and prisons unless absolutely necessary". These inmates are released from the prison for a certain period of time - which can be extended by Order of Court if circumstances require - and then are mandated to return to serve the balance of their minimum sentence of confinement, Bartlett said.

The province does not have "discretion to proactively release people who are remanded in custody pending outstanding court matters".

Since March 16, the population at all facilities across Ontario has dropped from 8,344 to 6,148, she said.

Most of those released are serving intermittent sentences, meaning sentences served over chunks of time - on weekends, for example - rather than all at once.

Becky Bartlett, deputy director of administration for Northampton County, said the Department of Corrections, Pre-Trial Services, and Adult Probation have been identifying inmates who are candidates for bail reductions for pending charges or probation violation detainers.

Justice Minister Caroline Wawzonek of the Northwest Territories said seven inmates have been granted temporary absences. Prisoners on intermittent sentences have also been given temporary absences. That includes all correctional staff, inmates and the Canadian public.

"It's a challenge in a closed-out environment like that, but we are doing everything we can", he said.

The correctional service is taking steps to restrict the spread of COVID-19, the statement says.

She said when making conditional release decisions, the board considers all relevant information related to an offender's case, including the gravity of the offence and the individual's health.

Elsewhere in the province, five inmates of the Alouette Correctional Centre for Women in Maple Ridge were released early; and four inmates each were released early from the Okanagan Correctional Centre in Oliver, the Vancouver Island Regional Correctional Centre near Victoria, and the Prince George Regional Correctional Centre.

The prison went on lockdown this past weekend after county officials announced two employees recently tested positive for COVID-19.

"They also lack access to some of the critical supplies people in the community are using to keep themselves safe, such as hand sanitizer, cleaning products and sometimes soap".

"We know that distance learning could never replace the learning and other benefits that students get from attending school in person", Inslee said.

The latest tally on Monday showed that 29 Florida Department of Corrections employees, who work at 14 prisons and three probation offices across the state, have tested positive for the virus.

No CCI inmates were positive as of Monday's report.

DOC said there are about 119 inmates in the unit where the individual was previously housed.
