Provide Adequate PPE and Test Prison Officers for Covid19.

Support Prison Officers to continue to perform their jobs safely by providing Covid19 personal protective equipment for those coming into contact with infected inmates. This is particularly  important for security staff who transfer sick inmates to isolation units and to hospital as required.

Make testing staff a priority along with NHS workers to facilitate correct isolation and enable staff who can work to return as quickly as possible to ensure prisons have sufficient human resource to maintain security.  

We must adequately protect all key workers. A failure to do so could lead to unsafe situations such as riots, putting both staff and potentially the public at risk if there is a loss of control.
