Utah Inmate Sues To Stop Alleged Moves That Spread COVID-19
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A state prison inmate has sued the Utah Department of Corrections to stop the movement of inmates among buildings, an alleged lack of mask use by prison officials and other practices he claims spreads the coronavirus.
Damon Christ, who is serving time for theft, alleges the practices contributed to COVID-19 outbreaks at the Draper facility, The Deseret News reports.
Since October, more than 1,200 inmates have been infected and 12 have died.
A department spokeswoman declined comment, citing pending litigation.
The department previously has said it consults health officials in moving inmates among buildings and quarantining those who test positive from the general prison population.
