Blameless and Forever Free Ministries understands the importance in keeping the loved ones and friends of our incarcerated beloveds, along with our followers, as informed as possible during this Novel coronavirus.
As of September 19, 2020, the CDCR/CCHCS is reporting that there are currently 1,474 incarcerated beloveds who are "active" carriers of COVID-19 inside California state prisons. That's a grand total of 12,722 inmate population being infected.
There are also 929 CDCR/CCHCS "active" staff members who have tested positive, along with 2,532 "resolved" staff member carriers that have returned back to work. This totals 3,461 staff infections.
Sadly, it has been reported that we now have 60 incarcerated beloveds who have passed away from what appears to be health-related complications due to COVID-19, along with nine (9) staff members.
Blameless and Forever Free Ministries would like to express our sincere condolences to the families of those who have passed away. May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you. We honor their lives through our work.
For the first time in three decades, the incarcerated population inside California state prisons is below 100,000 persons. As of September 18, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) in-prison population is 93,933.
Blameless and Forever Free Ministries is tracking changes within CDCR's policies and procedures very closely and sharing updates and resources as we receive them.
