What cleaning solutions are they using to clean within the facilities?

According to DOC's COVID-19 webpage, "All DOC locations instituted an intensive cleaning protocol focusing on sanitizing high touch surfaces, increased personal hygiene, and posting of DOH COVID-19 and hygiene related materials in public areas and areas visible to the incarcerated population. Hand sanitizer was authorized in prison facilities for use by employees, visitors, contract staff and volunteers and are placed in areas where soap and water are not readily available. Incarcerated individuals have access to hand sanitizer in supervised locations. We are also providing free access to sanitation products for individuals inside prisons."

According to the DOC representative on OCO's public phone call on March 23, DOC is utilizing Correct Pac Germicidal Disinfectant and a diluted bleach solution. Facilities are reportedly facing the same shortage in hand sanitizer that exists elsewhere. DOC/CI has made a large purchase of hand soap that will be handed out broadly.
