Today we’ll take a look at the Coronavirus pandemic’s effects in Utah jails and prisons. Our guests will include Salt Lake Tribune reporter Jessica Miller; Mayra Cristobal, whose husband has contracted COVID-19 and is incarcerated at the Weber County Jail; and Angie Millgate, whose former husband is incarcerated in the Washington County Jail.

Jessica Miller wrote earlier this month, “Eighty-two people incarcerated at the Weber County jail have tested positive for the coronavirus...It’s the largest outbreak yet in a Utah jail facility. Washington County jail officials also…reported a large spread of COVID-19 cases in their jail, with 59 inmates testing positive so far — nearly 20% of the jail population.”
