New York City To Release Select Inmates In Response To Coronavirus

Mayor Bill de Blasio made a big announcement on March 24th, reports Business Insider. He said that he plans to release select inmates from city jails, including Rikers Island.

That puts them at greater risk of becoming infected with a severe case. The policy won't include any inmates who have domestic violence or sexual offense charges
