Victoria Jenkins started this petition to "South Bay Mayor Joe kyle" "South Bay Commissioner Melisa McKinley" "GEO group CEO" "wptv channel 5" and

The Warden and Colonel at GEO Group ran South Bay Correctional & Rehabilitation Facility. Is allowing the officers to search multiple inmates and/or their property without changing the gloves, most are using personal gloves.

This practice can, according to CDC exacerbate the spread of Covid-19 by and through cross-contamination.

South Bay has one of the highest if not the highest cases of inmates that have tested positive for the Corona Virus in the state of Florida and at least three inmates have died from the virus.

This is just one of several unhealthy practices that are being employed by those in charge of the facility. This petition is to band this practice immediately and command that the staff change gloves every time they are searching a different inmate or a different inmates' property.

Florida inmates as a whole are at great risk to contract the virus because of cross-contamination simply because they are not changing their gloves. It is through this CDC prohibited conduct that the pandemic is allowed to run rampant. 

Please sign to support this petition to stop the spreading of Covid-19, thanks
