Eyes on CSATF
Corcoran, CA - A culture of carelessness, abuse, and neglect is now putting people in the states’ largest prison at risk of COVID-19. On September 3, an entire housing unit section in the California Substance Abuse Treatment Facility in Corcoran, California (SATF) F Yard Section 1, was cleared to make COVID-19 quarantine housing. Eyewitness testimonies from incarcerated people detail several ways in which this move was conducted with total disregard for health and safety practices. This is business as usual for SATF, which during this pandemic will likely result in widespread illness, injury, and death.
