ealth concerns have always been a huge problem for anyone who suffers from bad health and has been arrested. The pandemic has made the situation worse. Being in jail makes social distancing nearly impossible. The high infection rate of the virus increases the odds of you picking it up while you’re in jail. The stress of getting arrested increases the likelihood that you’ll get sick. If you have any underlying conditions, the situation is even worse.
If you already have health problems or you’re considered at high-risk you need to alert the booking officer of the situation. This isn’t the time to be shy about your medical history. They need to know if there are any early signs that you’re in medical distress that they have to watch for, if you’re on medication, or if you need medical help. If you’ve been exposed, you should also tell the booking officer so that they can take the appropriate safety measures.
Your family is your best line of defense against health problems once you’ve been arrested. If needed they can help you gather up the medical records, equipment, and medication you need to stay healthy while you wait to be released from jail.
Getting released from jail as quickly as possible is the best way to avoid suffering from health setbacks. The sooner you’re out of jail, the sooner you can take charge of your health.
