California judge closes COVID protection order for prison guards

A Kern County Superior Court judge in China has filed a petition from a coalition of state prison guards to block a vaccine that was due to begin Friday.

Judge Bernard Barmann issued a provisional protection order that protects the country from enacting the August 19 Department of Public Health order which required all employees – including law enforcement – to work or rotate prison prison plans to be fully vaccinated by October 14..

“What I don’t want to do is not want to put anyone in a situation where something that happens to them is unforgivable,” Barmann told China, referring to defending a court-marred court hearing.

Two hundred and forty inmates and 39 prison staff members died of COVID-19. Sixty percent of the Department of Rehabilitation and Rehabilitation staff have been vaccinated, according to the department’s website.

The government’s August 19 order was tightened before defending requirements by removing the election for some workers to be screened twice a week instead of getting medication.

It was one of two security orders affecting prison staff. One was from US Regional Commissioner Jon S. Tigar in Oakland on September 27.

Tigar’s advice was based on advice from co-founder J. Clark Kelso, who is in charge of medical treatment inside California prisons. It required the Rehabilitation and Rehabilitation Department to develop a plan to vaccinate all prison guards within two weeks.

The department, along with the recipient, submitted a three-page stabilization program on Tuesday that would require all workers to be fully vaccinated by November 29, with a progressive penalty starting May 15 for any workers who have not been shot there.

But – again on Tuesday – the department and Governor Gavin Newsom sent out a notice that the country was planning to appeal Judge Tigar’s decision, leaving the law in the lurch.

The California Correctional Peace Officers Association, which has donated $ 1.75 million to Newstom commemorative protections, has filed a lawsuit over all protection laws in court.

In Kern County, the coalition is seeking the first step in protecting the country from coercion in the August 19 Public Health Department. Bharmann’s restraining resting order protects the correctional officers from punishment while the court weighs the sentence. Filmmaking is in full swing next week.

The union request asked Barmann, whom Newsom appointed to the Kern County Court in December, to issue a restraining order against all prison employees. But Barmann issued a statement that applies only to workers represented by the CCPOA: judicial officers and other high-ranking peace activists working in prisons.
