Abstract

Starting the COVID-19 pandemic, physical and social distancing, besides wearing masks and frequent use of disinfectant, was and still is the most important preventive measure in stopping the spreading of the new coronavirus. Penitentiary institutions, especially the crowded ones, became a hard place to manage in stopping the infections. Why? Because these institutions are the ones where there is, even more, need to balance health protection with human rights. Using medical isolation and quarantine in the process of prevention of infections with the SARS-CoV-2 virus is complicated as a result of the use of punitive solitary confinement as a disciplinary sanction. The paper analyses the possible methods of protection of prisoners‟ health during the COVID-19 pandemic with parallel protection and respect of their basic and guaranteed human rights.
