So NY1 Political Reporter Courtney Gross is going to take us to Rikers Island to show how coronavirus has affected prisoners behind bars and the people who work at the infamous jail. You’ll hear firsthand accounts of what it was like when the virus started spreading.

Here’s her reporting in a special podcast episode of “Off Topic/On Politics.”
