Lansing Correctional Facility and KDOC Update About COVID-19
In an effort to provide resources to the Leavenworth, Lansing and KCK communities as we -- together -- protect our families and save lives, I am providing information to frequently asked questions that I am receiving from friends, family and constituents about COVID-19.
You can view the complete list of resources at www.votepittman.com/covid19.
Despite the unrest last week, procedures and PPE appear to be in place now, though I still feel as though the initial medical response to symptoms was sluggish. I have been working with KDHE, and they appear to have a good strategy that focuses on using the new LCF facility as a central point for quarantining inmates.
Medics from the Kansas National Guard will be helping at LCF by taking temperatures and assisting staff.
