Covid-19 on Death Row

Covid-19 has come to Ohio’s death row: 23 death row inmates have tested positive for the virus. None of the cases is in the block where Jeffrey Wogenstahl is incarcerated.

The inmates who have contracted the virus are in isolation. Of the 23 men with Covid-19, 10 are asymptomatic.

On death row, masks are worn by staff, and are available to inmates. Hand sanitizer and soap are also available.

Ohio’s prison system has been hard hit by the virus, with over 5,200 prisoners who have tested positive for Covid-19 as of July 30.

Our thoughts are with Jeff at this worrying time.
