The city was eyeing the release of 200 more inmates on Monday as the coronavirus contagion spreads through city jails — including some prisoners being considered because they’re nearing the end of their sentences, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The city intends to release “initially hundreds” of inmates from city jails to slow the spread of the coronavirus in the facilities, de Blasio said in an interview on 1010 WINS Monday morning.
The inmates considered for release will include prisoners with underlying health conditions, elderly people and those who have served most of their time, he said.
“Those are the categories were looking at and we’re going to announce day by day the number of people we think is appropriate,” de Blasio said in the radio interview.
On Monday, the NYPD was reviewing some 200 inmates who may meet the criteria to be released from city jails, the mayor said.
On Sunday, the city Department of Correction said it had 17 sick staffers and 29 inmates confirmed to have COVID-19.
At least 63 inmates have already been released, officials said. Additionally, 58 inmates were being monitored.
