The only As we mentioned at the beginning of the pandemic in California, the state’s justice system has implemented unprecedented protocols in an attempt to quell the surge in COVID-19 cases among incarcerated inmates by releasing 3,500 California inmates within 60 days.  

The Los Angeles Times reported on July 10, 2020—that as many as 8,000 California prisoners could be released ahead of schedule in an attempt to stop the spread of COVID-19 inside state prisons. More than half of these releases are expected by the end of the month August according to officials at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Those convicted of violent felonies and sex crimes would be ineligible for release under this program. Only those with a year or less left to serve on their sentence would be considered eligible.

“These actions are taken to provide for the health and safety of the incarcerated population and staff,” corrections Secretary Ralph Diaz said in a written statement. “We aim to implement these decompression measures in a way that aligns both public health and public safety.”

Governor Newsome has been attempting to address the spread of the pandemic in California’s correctional facilities since early March. These efforts at “decompression” of California’s prison system have shrunk the prison population by approximately 10,000 inmates.

Newsom on Thursday said nearly 2,400 people in California’s 35 prisons have tested positive for the coronavirus, including 1,314 at Northern California’s San Quentin State Prison.
