NCCHC and COVID-19: Lessons We've Learned in our Facilities

Event Dates

When the coronavirus pandemic was in its infancy, NCCHC and MCSA both recognized the tremendous challenge it would pose for correctional institutions.

We knew that sheriffs needed access to real-time information as well as experts in correctional health care in order to keep their
facilities safe.

Working quickly, our organizations came together to offer free, weekly webinars focused on different concerns that could arise from the spread of coronavirus.

These webinars included officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nationally recognized medical experts, leading scholars in our field, and several sheriffs with experience in both patrol and correctional practices.

These webinars ran for 10 weeks during the height of the pandemic, with nearly 5,000 live participants.

What came out of these webinars are our "lessons learned".
