Robert Lavern, 52, contracted COVID-19 while serving time at the William S. Key Correctional Center in Fort Supply. He was afraid to tell guards or medical staff he felt unwell because symptomatic inmates were kept in isolation rooms with no heat or air, beds or entertainment. Lavern said it felt like inmates were being punished for being sick.
