    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”.


    During this webinar, we will:

    • Identify ways to improve quality in health services during pandemics
    • Discuss strategies for reducing liability and risk
    • Share how data during COVID-19 was used to assist correctional health care field
    • Describe how nationally recognized standards can help mitigate your infectious disease risk
    • Discuss how to prepare for the next pandemic event
