2022 Monroe Testimonials

Below are over 20 testimonials from survivors of the Covid-19 pandemic at Monroe.

Jim is over 70 years old and was diagnosed with both COPD and emphysema before contracting Covid-19 in prison.

Brent tested negative for Covid, but he was still on lock-down for two months without: recreation time, hot food, medical, JPay (to call/email loved ones), Kiosk, and “medication has been off and on.”

Craig describes Covid quarantine at Monroe as “worse than IMU/The Hole”: “If there is a medical ermgancy — you can yell + scream for hours + non one comes cuz no one cares.”
