Bay Area Medical Societies Write to Governor Concerning Outbreak at San Quentin

Five Bay Area Medical Societies, representing over 10,000 physician members, submitted a joint letter to Governor Newsom drawing attention to the alarming COVID-19 outbreak at San Quentin state prison. The number of infected, which has passed 1000, has implications for the incarcerated population and the staff at San Quentin, and for the capacity of the local hospitals to which many of these patients have been transferred. The letter calls attention to recommendations and requests made by the County of Marin Board of Supervisors, among others. You can view the joint letter here.
