The goal of the Incarceration and Re-Entry Experiences during the COVID-19 Response (I-RECOOVER) project is to understand the experiences of incarcerated people returning to their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is conducting interviews to hear the perspectives of people recently released from Maryland prison, jail, or detention facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also investigating how family and friends of people in custody describe the incarceration conditions of their loved ones during the pandemic. Finally, we are exploring barriers and facilitators that service providers experience in providing resources to individuals returning to their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

This project is a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and community partners.
