Rockville Correctional Staff And Offenders Team-Up To Slow The Spread Of COVID-19

(ROCKVILLE) –  The staff and offenders at the Rockville Correctional Facility (RCF) are committed to defeating the deadly Corona Virus, COVID 19 where it stands – this far, no farther is the facility mantra.

Attempting to slow down or stop the spread of this potentially deadly disease RCF staff and offenders are practicing social distancing, washing their hands frequently, donning masks, and cleaning everything in sight several times a day. In addition to the routine facility cleaning that takes place, crews of offenders under the guidance of staff are making rounds day and night using bleach to wipe down and disinfect surfaces.

Incarcerated, offenders lack the ability to personally check up on family or friends at home thereby increasing anxiety. With open and honest communication from the top down the Department of Correction and RCF staff can remain informed passing that information on to, and calming the fears of the offender population.

All staff and offenders are committed to the idea that we are all in this together.
