COVID-19

We deal with risks and threats daily as corrections professionals. Infectious diseases are part of what we face on our daily walks. We can't stop taking in detainees just because there's a pandemic. So what do we do? GUARDIAN RFID has partnered with Anne Spaulding, MD, an infectious disease specialist who breaks down what COVID-19 (coronavirus) is, how we can help stop the transmission from inmate to inmate, and inmate to officer. Our goal is to help supply the information and tools to reduce risk and help provide a safer, smarter, more secure facility.
