While the rest of the United States practices social distancing, most prison inmates live in quarters where they physically cannot stay the recommended 6 feet apart. They usually have at least one cellmate, and some live in dormitory-like housing with close-set bunks. They eat together and exercise together. Many prisons ban hand sanitizer because it has alcohol in it.
