SCI Chester has had a busy week amidst COVID-19. One of Chester's beloved unit managers, Rachel Williams, retired with more than 23 years of dedicated service. Additionally, Jeraldo Aponte returned home to Chester as the deputy superintendent for facilities management, and Kenneth Eason was promoted into the role of acting superintendent.

On top of that, CERA (Chester Employees Recreation Association) has been busy providing alternative food options for staff which include build-your-own-burger, Taco Tuesday and Wrap Friday!

Chester has also begun Meals on Wheels, which are mobile serving stations that allow groups of staff to take portable warmers to each unit and provide the inmates a controlled feed on the unit. This allows the men to get hot meals, 2-3 times per day. It also eliminates the amount of time it takes to feed the blocks, with the entire facility being fed in less than an hour while still maintaining social distancing.
