Sydney Studer started this petition to Chief of Staff Ann O'Leary

COVID positive prisoners were transferred from the California Institution for Men in Chino to San Quentin State Prison. 

That's right -- a prison infected with COVID sent COVID-infected people to a prison that had ZERO COVID CASES. 

Since then, it has been impossiblE to socially distance or have proper hygiene. According to people inside the prison, they have not been able to shower in five days as of today (July 4, 2020). 

There now are more than 1000 COVID cases at San Quentin (1 in 3 inmates), including guards who come and go from the prison.

Last month, state representative Mark Levine sent a letter to the California Department of Corrections warning about the potential to overwhelm the Marin county health system and asking for a plan. No plan was provided. 

UCSF and UC Berkeley issued a report two weeks ago recommending a 50% reduction or more in prison population in addition to other protective measures, which given the spread of the infection at this point, will not be effective.

The Governor has been sued repeatedly in the past few months by the ACLU and others to reduce CA prison populations due to COVID.  

We need to immediately reduce the inmate population and also ensure that we have adequate ICU capacity by opening and properly staffing one of the several closed hospitals. 

Please take a minute to sign the petition to demand immediate action to address this problem before it costs lives. 

If you want to do more, quickly call (916) 445-2841 or email the governor and demand immediate action on the San Quentin COVID crisis at https://govapps.gov.ca.gov/gov40mail/
