COVID-19 ALERT: Moose Lake Prison

The A-C-L-U of Minnesota has taken legal action against the state following a COVID-19 outbreak at the Moose Lake prison.

The suit demands that people at risk behind bars – who are not a threat to the public and whose sentences are winding down – be released if they have a safe location for isolation.

A-C-L-U attorney Dan Shulman says the suit claims the prison isn’t testing people who are incarcerated, despite the outbreak of cases.
