COVID-19 ALERT: Great Meadow Correctional Facility

An inmate at the Great Meadow Correctional Facility began to notice some of the other prisoners were getting sick. Fearful for his life, he called his wife, Renee Evans-Henry.

Evans-Henry said her husband was afraid that the coronavirus had made its way into the Washington County, New York, facility weeks after officials suspended facility visitation as a preventative measure — despite the fact that inmates weren’t told anything.

She asked ABC News not use her husband’s name due to HIPAA laws.
