With Educational Programs Canceled, Loop It Up Savannah Sends Activity Kits To Kids   

Cache   
When the nonprofit arts and enrichment program Loop It Up Savannah realized that their regularly scheduled programming was going to fall apart for the foreseeable future, Executive Director Molly Lieberman realized they needed to shift gears — fast. “We realized we weren’t going to have any of the special events we’ve planned,” Lieberman said. “So, what can we be doing to stay connected to our students and contribute in a positive way?”
          

With The Food Service Industry In Crisis, Giving Kitchen Steps In To Help    

Cache   
Working in the food service industry can be a tough gig, even without a pandemic . Many workers are uninsured and — like the restaurants employing them — have little financial cushion for weathering crises . Since 2013, Giving Kitchen has helped bolster the industry by providing crisis grants, resources, and assistance to food service workers. But now, with restaurant closures and many folks out of work, more food industry employees find themselves in crisis than ever before — an insurmountable challenge for the small Atlanta-based nonprofit .
          

Atlanta Couple From Diamond Princess Donates Blood For Coronavirus Vaccine, Cure

Renee and Clyde Smith were quarantined for weeks in a Japanese hospital when they tested positive for coronavirus aboard a cruise ship in February. Though neither developed symptoms of COVID-19, they waited in isolation until they both tested negative and could return home. Now, the couple is hoping their blood will help others as they participate in a study of how antibodies from recovered COVID-19 patients might be therapeutic for people still in the throes of the disease.

Aula en casa: El boom literario   

Cache   

Aquí encontrará estos días contenido de clase que suministra el Ministerio de Educación a través de colombiaaprende.edu.co

Hoy: Lenguaje grado noveno

1. El Boom

Nace en un contexto histórico complejo entre 1960 y 1970, en un continente donde los gobiernos dictatoriales dominaban toda la región. Con el triunfo de la Revolución Cubana y el consecuente repliegue del imperialismo estadounidense, los escritores promueven la posibilidad de trasladar ese triunfo revolucionario también al arte, creando su propia identidad literaria, una literatura latinoamericana. De este modo nace el género literario que adoptarán los escritores del Boom: lo que muchos denominan como realismo mágico en su impacto cultural.

2. Fenómeno literario y editorial surgido en los años 60 y 70 del siglo XX en América Latina. En ese periodo, un grupo de jóvenes autores rompieron el esquema tradicional de la literatura, con el realismo mágico como común denominador y con una riqueza narrativa que sacudió los cimientos de Europa.

3. Características

- La reacción contra la novela criollista e indigenista.

- Explora la condición y la angustia del ser humano.

- Imaginación y la fantasía creadora.

- Lo irracional y lo absurdo se presentan como cotidiano.

- La desasociación del amor y la enfatización de la soledad humana.

- Quitarle valor a la muerte. A veces la muerte es una salvación.

- Sexualidad y exaltación de la vida secreta de los personajes.

4. Postboom

Movimiento literario latinoamericano que tuvo lugar, como su nombre lo indica, después del auge del Boom latinoamericano. Algunos estudiosos y autores prefieren llamarlo "Novísima literatura" o "Literatura postmoderna" para no utilizar términos extranjeros. Manifiesta diferentes narrativas, pues sus autores presentan propuestas y algunos reaccionan contra el boom y criticaron sus excesos técnicos y adornos en el lenguaje. (Martínez, 2013).

5. Responde a las siguientes preguntas de acuerdo con el texto anterior.

a. Movimiento que promueve y consolida el sentir de lo propio latinoamericano:

b. ¿Qué crees que significa para el boom romper con el esquema tradicional de la literatura?

c. ¿Cómo explicas que el postboom manifieste diferentes narrativas? Justifica tu respuesta.

There are low-cost ways to help vulnerable health care workers fight the pandemic. Here’s what we can do.   

Cache   

If we had told you a year ago that the United States has roughly 160,000 ventilators compared to Mali, which has 20, you might not have given that statistic much thought. Just one of many numbers that loses its significance in the blur of statistics describing global inequality. Enter the pandemic. Suddenly otherwise obscure health statistics have a lot more meaning.

People around the world now have a global collective understanding for what some of these numbers really mean. Italy’s health system has been overwhelmed, and the spread of the virus suggests that many, if not most, other countries will experience a similar onslaught. Italy has 100 doctors and nurses per 10,000 people. Kenya has 17. How can places like Kenya even begin thinking about launching a pandemic counterattack with such limited resources? 

One thing is clear: health systems will be stressed everywhere in the world, but frontline health care workers in Sub-Saharan Africa are going to be particularly stretched. Global statistics on basic health provisions – e.g. number of health care workers and hospital beds per country – highlight the stark contrasts. But since a rapid expansion of a skilled health workforce is not a viable option in the timeframe that the pandemic has imposed on us, we need to work out how to make best use of existing resources. As a start, we need to do whatever we can to keep our health care workers safe. Italy’s health care workers face COVID-19 infection rates 5 times higher than the general population. In countries with less effective health systems, this could be much higher, reducing even further the pool of health care workers who are available. Infection prevention and control (IPC) guidelines provide the playbook for what health facilities should be doing to minimize the risk of patient and worker infections. Unfortunately, there’s very little data on what IPC practices are in place in developing country health facilities, which makes it difficult to work out where to focus attention.

A recent paper, Observations of infection prevention and control practices in primary health care, Kenya and policy brief, Supporting Vulnerable Health Systems Improve Infection Prevention and Control to Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic, provide valuable insight. The study fills in some important data points that provide guidance on how to begin breaking down the daunting task ahead. The work is a culmination of a massive effort tracking the journeys of 14,328 patients through 935 health facilities in Kenya. The methods used to trace IPC practices deserves its own blog, but in a nutshell, they study patient visits to a health facility, tracking each time possible infections could occur and whether health care workers took appropriate action to keep themselves and their patients safe. Each juncture where potential contamination could occur is referred to as an “indication.” In all, 106,464 such indications were recorded, representing the single largest data collection effort on IPC practices and patient safety in primary care settings in any low- or middle-income country. 

The authors help illustrate the process: 

“…it is helpful to think of a patient journey through a primary care visit. They will first see a nurse, who must wash his/her hands before the examination. The nurse will then go through the examination, and will have to disinfect the thermometer with an alcohol-based solution. To conduct an invasive procedure, for instance, attending to an open wound, the nurse must wear personal protective equipment (PPE) such as gloves, and segregate infectious waste into appropriate containers.”

The results from the exercise are sobering. Out of an average of 7.5 indications per visit, there were 5.1 “violations,” where the IPC guidelines were not followed. With more complex consultations requiring more IPC practices, the number of violations steadily increased (Figure 1).

"Cien años de soledad"   

Cache   
"José Arcadio Buendía soñó esa noche que en aquel lugar se levantaba una ciudad ruidosa, con casas de paredes de espejo. Preguntó qué ciudad era aquélla, y le contestaron con un nombre que nunca había oído, que no tenía significado alguno, pero que tuvo en el sueño una resonancia sobrenatural: Macondo".
Ahora queda casi oportunista decirlo, pero aseguro que releer "Cien años de soledad" formaba parte de mis planes de lectura a corto plazo. He reconfigurado mis prioridades con carácter inmediato tras la reciente muerte de Gabriel García Márquez (en Jueves Santo, como el personaje de Úrsula Iguarán). Dos décadas después de mi primera lectura de la novela, puedo recomendar con entusiasmo que no sólo hay que visitar Macondo, sino que también hay que volver a ese lugar de evocaciones mágicas.
"Cien años de soledad" (1967) es mucho más que el seguimiento de la estirpe de los Buendía, amenazada, como diría Úrsula, por la guerra, las gallos de pelea, las mujeres de mala vida y las empresas delirantes. Es un uso del lenguaje riquisimo y de embriagadora sonoridad. Es la puesta en escena de personajes apasionados y apasionantes. Es la combinación de cotidianeidad y de desafíos a la física elemental. Es el poder de exagerarlo todo para impactar en el núcleo de dramas humanos (los celos, las guerras, los conflictos laborales, la pasión no correspondida y, claro, la soledad).
"La literatura es el mejor instrumento para burlarse de la gente", escribe aquí Gabo. Decir que "Cien años de soledad" es una obra en la que se cuestiona el poder civil, el militar o el religioso podría ser coger el rábano por las hojas. En realidad, la gran burla viene por poner de manifiesto nuestro intento vano y desesperado por querer vivir, combinando rutinas e ilusiones, conocimiento y superstición, planes minuciosamente trazados y explosiones espontáneas, para marcarnos un camino que creemos, ingenuamente, que es nuestro. Muchos dicen lo mismo, pero muy pocos nos encandilan tanto. "Cien años de soledad"es, sin duda, una obra magna. Háganse el favor de no leerla sólo una vez.
"El secreto de una buena vejez no es otra cosa que un pacto honrado con la soledad"

          

"El amor en los tiempos del cólera"   

Cache   

"Cuando Florentino Ariza la vio por primera vez, su madre lo había descubierto desde antes de que él se lo contara, porque perdió el habla y el apetito, y se pasaba las noches en claro dando vueltas en la cama. Pero cuando empezó a esperar la respuesta a su primera carta, la ansiedad se le complicó con cagantinas y vómitos verdes, perdió el sentido de la orientación y sufría desmayos repentinos, y su madre se aterrorizó porque su estado no se parecía a los desórdenes del amor sino a los estragos del cólera. El padrino de Florentino Ariza, un anciano homeópata, que había sido confidente de Tránsito Ariza desde sus tiempos de amante escondida, se alarmó también a primera vista con el estado del enfermo, porque tenía el pulso tenue, la respiración arenosa y los sudores pálidos de los moribundos. Pero el examen le reveló que no tenía fiebre, ni dolor en ninguna parte, y lo único concreto que sentía era una necesidad urgente de morir. Le bastó con un interrogatorio insidioso, primero a él y después a la madre, para comprobar una vez más que los síntomas del amor son los mismos del cólera."

Aquí vale aquella frase de "es la historia de un amor como no hay otro igual". Demasiada gente conoce el sabor de los amores contrariados, pero aquí queda fijado que huelen a almendras amargas, sobre todo para los que, esperando, han desesperado. Aquí se cuenta un amor que resiste al paso de los años, de los acontecimientos privados y de los avances tecnológicos. Estamos hablando del amor en la era del telégrafo, de los progresos del servicio postal y de los inicios del teléfono (fijo, claro).

Todo empieza un día extraño en la vida del metódico y religioso doctor Juvenal Urbino, con la muerte de un amigo. Ninguno de ellos, sin embargo, protagonizan la historia de amor principal, que pertenece a Florentino Ariza y Fermina Daza. A pesar de la devoción de Florentino, Fermina se casa con un buen partido, el doctor Juvenal, con quien convive durante décadas. Por su parte, Florentino Ariza vive su vida siempre acechando su momento para reencontrarse con Fermina.

Gabriel García Márquez dijo de "El amor en los tiempos del cólera" (1985) que sería la obra por la que se le recordaría. Aunque los vericuetos de la memoria popular llevan a Macondo ("Cien años de soledad"), sí que es verdad que, por construcción y por estilo, ésta que nos ocupa es mejor. Es una obra maestra de la literatura sobre el verdadero amor, indestructible ante las embestidas del calendario.

"Otra cosa bien distinta habría sido la vida para ambos de haber sabido a tiempo que era más fácil sortear las grandes catástrofes matrimoniales que las miserias minúsculas de cada día, pero si algo habían aprendido juntos era que la sabiduría nos llega cuando ya no sirve para nada."


          

Toma Uno - Déjame apoyado en la jukebox - 04/04/20   

Cache   

El Covid-19 nos dejó sin Joe Diffie el pasado domingo, una de las voces más representativas del country de los años 90. Había nacido en Tulsa, Oklahoma, y durante mucho tiempo vivió en aquella zona. Posteriormente se trasladó a Texas, Washington y Wisconsin, desarrollando su amor por la country music desde muy temprana edad. En su familia había una enorme inclinación musical, ya que su padre tocaba la guitarra y su madre cantaba. Era fácil escuchar a un jovencísimo Joe Diffie interpretar junto a la radio temas tradicionales y en el tocadiscos casero siempre sonaban los que fueron sus grandes favoritos: Merle HaggardJohnny CashBuck OwensLefty Frizzell… y George Jones.

Uno de los indiscutibles maestros de la country music es George Jones, una de las grandes influencias de Joe Diffie, que recordaba de esta manera el que fue primer No. 1 del "Possum", un “White Lightning” que escribió una estrella del rock and roll de los 50 como J.P. Richardson, apodado The Big Bopper, que había muerto pocos meses antes en el mismo accidente de avión en el que desaparecieron Buddy Holly y Ritchie Valens.

En 1993, Diffie escribió esta oda a las salas de baile que surgieron por todo Estados Unidos en los primeros años noventa, cuando se despertó la Garth Brooks-manía y aparecieron canciones como "Boot Scootin’ Boogie" de Brooks & Dunn. El propio artista cantaba sobre "pantalones ajustados, baile en línea, sombreros Stetson y botas de vaquero", siendo un excelente ejemplo de cómo su voz se convirtió en la compañía habitual de cualquier viaje en coche en el que sintonizabas una emisora de radio de country music en aquella época. "Honky-Tonk Attitude” dio nombre a su tercer álbum y supuso su afianzamiento definitivo. A pesar de seguir las pautas de su segundo registro, en aquella ocasión Joe Diffie se apuntó a esa actitud de honky-tonk que definió su título e incrementó su popularidad.

Tras un divorcio complicado, el artista hoy recordado marchó a Nashville porque no tenía nada más que perder. Trabajó para una editorial y empezó a ser conocido como compositor a la vez que sus maquetas eran de las más solicitadas, ya que su voz destacaba de forma natural. De esa forma consiguió firmar un contrato discográfico. Su single de debut llegó en 1990 con el tema de apertura de su primer álbum, A Thousand Winding Roads, y marco el comienzo de su carrera. Además, supuso todo un récord para su compañía discográfica, Epic, ya que se convirtió en el primer No.1 de uno de sus artistas debutantes en toda su historia. Incluso obligó a Alan Jackson a no publicar como single una canción del mismo título. "Home" era una balada campera en toda regla con recuerdos de mejores tiempos en el hogar, con imágenes familiares entrañables que ahora parecen perdidas.

Joe Diffie se asoció con Mary Chapin Carpenter para una colaboración que resultó sorprendente por los distintos modos y maneras de sus protagonistas. La artista de Princeton, en Nueva Jersey, estaba en 1992 ante su obra cumbre, el álbum Come On, Come On, y fue allí donde apareció “Not Too Much To Ask”, una canción de amor interpretada a dúo con una evidente diferencia de registro pero con un resultado armonioso que conjugó el dobro del maestro Jerry Douglas. La repercusión fue tal que el tema consiguió una nominación al Grammy.

Joe Diffie tenía 61 años y a lo largo de su carrera nos dejó canciones como "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox (If I Die)", que su espíritu del honky tonk nos pide siempre escuchar a todo volumen. En cierto modo, recuerda a "Friends In Low Places", con el protagonismo del piano y el ruego a los amigos de que cumplan una última petición, la de dejarle apoyado contra la vieja máquina de discos. A su vez, él les promete que será el alma de la fiesta, incluso cuando esté muerto y desaparecido.

El regreso a nuestra especial "normalidad" nos cita con Blackberry Smoke, una de las bandas más poderosas de la escena del Southern rock que no tiene ninguna intención de entregar el testigo. Al contrario, van fortaleciendo su estatus con grabaciones como la que estará a la venta el próximo 19 de junio, en forma de nuevo EP especial con el título de Live From Capricorn Sound Studios. La apertura es una versión imponente de “Midnight Rider”, un tema de la Allman Brothers Band, que el mítico grupo tocó por primera vez hace medio siglo en aquellos míticos estudios de Macon, en Georgia, y que formó parte de su segundo álbum, Idlewild South. Es el único tema de las seis canciones que componen el disco en que Blackberry Smoke tocan solos, ya que a lo largo de la grabación participaron Marcus Henderson de la Marshall Tucker BandJimmy Hall de Wet Willie y The Black Bettys. Las ganancias se destinarán al Fondo de Ayuda MusiCares COVID-19 para ayudar a las personas de la comunidad musical afectada por el coronavirus.

Naked Garden, el último álbum editado por Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, pone el foco a las sesiones de grabación de su predecesor, Turn Off the News (Build a Garden), incluyendo tomas alternativas de la mitad de esas canciones. Pero también encontramos un buen número de las que no pasaron a formar parte de aquel registro, como es el caso del sinuoso "Entirely Different Stars", que sirve de apertura y en la que el narrador imagina una visita a otros planetas para tener una perspectiva diferente del mundo, con riffs de guitarra de tintes psicodélicos. Al contrario de la imagen que dio Turn Off the News (Build a Garden), con un tono musculoso y atrevido, Naked Garden termina siendo la otra cara de la moneda, mostrando a la banda en un ambiente relajado e íntimo, interiorizando la conformación del que ha sido uno de sus proyectos más contundentes.

"Only Children", la historia de dos bohemios inundada con un sentimiento de nostalgia, es una de las más bellas canciones de estas fechas y forma parte de la nueva aventura sonora de Jason Isbell And The 400 UnitReunions. Tomando el relevo a The Nashville Sound, publicado hace tres años, el registro ha sido producido con la maestría habitual de su viejo amigo Dave Cobb que ha cincelado un disco en el que contribuyen con su presencia David Crosby y Jay Buchanan, cantante de Rival Sons.

Con riffs de guitarras que evocan al más intenso y profundo Neil YoungLucinda Williams sigue destapando canciones personales de su nuevo álbum Good Souls, Better Angels“Big Black Train” es una de esas canciones impactantes a las que nos tiene acostumbrado la artista de Louisiana. En este caso, el propio título, “el gran tren negro”, es toda una metáfora de la depresión, un problema en el que profundiza, haciéndose eco de los sentimientos de miedo que suelen envolver a quienes la padecen y de la súplica solemne de no volver a subir a ese barco.

El salto de calidad de los Mastersons en los últimos tiempos es espectacular y su nueva entrega discográfica, No Time For Love Songs, producido por Shooter Jennings, que ha aportado un toque de prestancia al trabajo. El álbum está tejido por el dolor de las experiencias personales vividas por la pareja en el último año, como las muertes de sus amigos de Austin Chris Porter y George Reiff, además de la pérdida de Kelley Looney miembro de los Dukes. Tras la publicación de Good Luck Charm, había muerto el padre de Chris Masterson y tras una charla con su amiga Rosie Flores surgió el título del nuevo disco, No Time for Love Songs"King of the Castle" intenta canalizar y darle una utilidad a la pena para convertirla en palabras y música, sabiendo que el dolor no se va nunca. Es una forma de homenajear a quien se ha ido.

Y nos detenemos para despedir el programa de hoy con Lilly Hiatt que ha continuado su línea ascendente con Walking Proof, el cuarto álbum de una carrera que siempre estará marcada por ser hija de John Hiatt, uno de los más respetados iconos de la Americana. Es la primera vez que el veterano músico participa junto a ella, en este caso en una de las canciones más brillantes del trabajo, "Some Kind of Drug", descotando por supuesto el lanzamiento especial que hicieron en la pasada edición del Record Store Day, versionándose mutuamente. La cantante y compositora californiana establecida en Nashville, pero apartada de la industria más visible de la Music City, ha completado un álbum que exhibe poderío, imaginación y letras de mayor intensidad emocional. También se ha rodeado de invitados selectos, entre los que encontramos a Aaron Lee TasjanAmanda Shires y Luke Schneider.


          

Triple-slaying suspect surrenders after standoff; child safe   

Cache   

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — After a prolonged standoff, Florida state troopers arrested a Georgia man accused of fatally shooting three people in his child's mother's family and kidnapping his child, authorities said Wednesday.

Caesar Zamien Lamar Crockett Jr. safely handed his 2-year-old son over to authorities after a crash near Tampa. He then stayed in his vehicle for several hours in a standoff with law enforcement before he eventually surrendered without incident, officials said.

Crockett, 29, was wanted on three counts of murder and one count of kidnapping, according to a statement from the Bibb County Sheriff's Office. His vehicle was spotted on Interstate 75 near Tampa, which led to a police chase onto Interstate 4, according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release.

Crockett eventually crashed near the interchange between the two highways, FHP said.

Crockett left with his son, King Cane Crockett, 2, after getting into a fight with the child's mother Tuesday night in Macon, Georgia. During the fight, authorities said Caesar Crockett pulled out a gun and fatally shot the woman's mother, stepfather and sister.

Georgia jailers cope with COVID-19; release inmates, quarantine arrivals   

Cache   

By Stanley Dunlap | Georgia Recorder | March 30, 2020

Updated March 30 to include a response from the Gwinnett County Sheriff.

The Dougherty County detention center is a little more than a mile away from Albany’s Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital where medical staffers are on the front line of Georgia’s battle against the COVID-19 outbreak.

It is one of many jails in the state where local law enforcement is taking a second look at releasing offenders who they’d usually keep locked up in an effort to allow more space for inmates to distance among themselves. County jails and state prisons are under increasing scrutiny from civil rights groups in Georgia that want to ensure people in captivity are protected from dangers posed by the sometimes deadly disease caused by the highly contagious coronavirus.

State health officials reported that by Sunday evening, 247 people in Dougherty County had tested positive for COVID-19, the third highest number in the state, overwhelming the county’s main hospital.

Dougherty’s jail population is down from 600 inmates to about 515, according to chief jailer John Ostrander. That 15% reduction came from relaxing some rules, working with the Department of Community Supervision to temporarily drop warrants for people with probation reporting violations or failed drug tests.

Offenders locked up for relatively minor charges like disorderly conduct to driving with a suspended license are candidates for release and the people newly arrested for those kinds of crimes are often not booked into the detention center, Ostrander said.

Ostrander created a separate housing pod and instituted automatic testing of anyone exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms like consistent coughing, shortness of breath or a temperature over 100.4 degrees. 

“Everybody has their own piece of the puzzle and for us at the jail obviously our primary goal is to guard the general inmate population in every way that we can,” he said. “I believe that our general population in the Dougherty County jail is the single most protected group in the county.” 

Georgia’s locally run jails hold about 38,000 people on a given day and about 52,000 convicted felons are held in state prisons.

Many jailers report adopting new stringent disinfectant measures to contain the coronavirus spread, limiting access to prisoners by suspending visitation, and practicing other public health precautions such as frequent hand washing and taking new inmates’ temperatures.

An outbreak at Lee State Prison near Albany resulted in the death of an inmate last week and sent three other inmates and a staffer to the hospital. Across the state, other law enforcement employees and inmates tested positive, including a DeKalb County regional youth detention staffer as well as a Fulton County inmate.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia and Southern Center for Human Rights are asking Georgia’s sheriffs to lower the jail population as Dougherty County is doing. They call for the release of many low-risk offenders and people who are most vulnerable due to age or poor health. And they are pressing jailers to follow other public health recommendations to mitigate the risk of infection.

The ACLU said in a statement last week it is disappointed that the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office isn’t releasing more people accused of minor offenses from its jail. It is also monitoring the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office, where several detention center employees are now in self-quarantine after one of their co-workers tested positive for COVID-19.

By Sunday evening, state health officials confirmed 2,683 positive tests for COVID-19 in Georgia, including cases in the four largest Atlanta area counties ranging from 145 in Gwinnett to 425 in Fulton.

“Gwinnett County should release individuals who are low-level offenders or who are incarcerated awaiting trial because of an inability to pay cash bail or in custody due to an inability to pay fines and fees,” said Christopher Bruce, political director of the ACLU of Georgia. “Putting people at risk by keeping people in jails beyond what is necessary not only is immoral but also poses a far-reaching health threat to the greater community.”

A Gwinnett sheriff’s spokeswoman said that the release of inmates is decided by the courts and that its staff is working to expand the ability for inmates to access the court by video services.

The Cobb sheriff’s department did not respond to messages left by the Georgia Recorder on Friday. 

In Fulton County, one inmate tested positive last week. Fulton jailers are using touchless thermometers for the first time to screen people for fevers at intake. And Fulton’s sheriff granted more than 30 inmates an early release to limit overcrowding.  

Bibb County Sheriff David Davis said his office is already following some of the requests from groups like the ACLU and Southern Center for Human Rights.

Inside the Macon jail, staff is reminded frequently to wash hands and use hand sanitizers. The jail population is down to about 837 inmates from 900 a few weeks ago after letting out inmates facing nonviolent charges with health conditions that make them more vulnerable to the coronavirus.

That includes releasing some inmates with heart ailments or health complications related to diabetes, Davis said.

One section of Bibb County’s jail is sectioned off as a quarantine area so that inmates exhibiting symptoms can be isolated.

“We have had other situations similar to this, you have a flu outbreak in your facility you have to do those isolation techniques,” Davis said. “The baseline plans are already in place for facilities like this. While this is a unique and communicable disease, there’s other things that can get into a jail that are just as contagious and create problems in a tight confined place.”

Sheriffs across the state are also taking extra precautions to try to limit the exposure to ensure the safety of jailers and other staff, said said Terry Norris, executive director of the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association. 

“It’s very difficult, if not impossible, to completely social distance all the deputies and certainly jailers to have that distance we need because they come in contact with the public,” Norris said. “Protecting that limited workforce is vital for us.”
