Wallace, M., Marlow, M., Simonson, S., et al. (2020). Public Health Response to COVID-19 Cases in Correctional and Detention Facilities - Louisiana, March-April 2020. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. 69(19):594-598.
This report summarizes an assessment of 24 Louisiana correctional and detention facilities with reported COVID-19 cases using the COVID-19 Management Assessment and Response (CMAR) tool. The authors found that facility administrators were aware of and understood guidance related to COVID-19, and in some cases instituted measures beyond those currently recommended, but were challenged in implementing quarantine and social distancing measures in their available physical space.
