The SAFER-C™ model can help correctional leaders forecast outcomes and manage their facilities while addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. This practical planning tool helps corrections leaders make critical decisions to prevent disease spread and protect both inmates and staff.

The SAFER-C model uses data specific to an individual facility to estimate infections and deaths. Decision-makers can use it to predict the impacts of a wide range of decisions, including:

Starting or stopping inmate work programs. | Serving meals in cells or in mess halls. | Changing the length of isolation for infected individuals. | Opening or closing gym and workout facilities.
