Default Coronavirus hits Louisiana prisons:

The head warden and medical director of Raymond Laborde Correctional Center in Avoyelles Parish have died from the coronavirus, state officials have confirmed.
Warden Sandy McCain, who had overseen Raymond Laborde Correctional Center for the past four years and had served with DOC for almost three decades, died after battling COVID-19 for almost a month, Department of Corrections officials said. McCain had tested positive last month, saying he planned to quarantine himself as a precautionary measure and asking the inmates in his care to "wash your hands and stay safe."

That's so sad but it really shows how close proximity can spread this vicious illness. If even the ones caring for those incarcerated aren't safe from it, what chance do the people who can't escape it have? I haven't heard any mention of this on the local news in New Orleans. Guess they don't want it to attract much attention.
